Here is a great holiday side dish! Of course it can be made and enjoyed any time. My mom makes this. I prefer to mash the potatoes somewhat coursely or lumpy rather than as smoothly as typical mashed potatoes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375. Bake potatoes until very tender -- about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Let cool, and reduce oven heat to 350.
  2. Scoop potatoes out of peels and mash until desired texture. Stir in remaining ingredients and place in casserole dish (9 X 9).
  3. Combine topping ingredients and sprinkle over potatoes. Bake until done at 350 -- about 1/2 hours.
  4. Optional: stud with 9 pecan halves at even intervals before returning to oven, just to make it look pretty.
