  • 8 medium-sized russet potatoes, peeled and halved
  • 4 links Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 5 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 cup whole milk, warmed up
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • salt, pepper, and paprika (to taste)
  • fresh chopped parsley, for garnish


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Next, cut your potatoes into similar sizes, put them in a pot with water, and boil them until tender for about 20 minutes. In a pan, heat some oil, then add the Italian sausage and chopped onions. Break the meat apart and brown it all the way through. Season with Italian seasoning and ground black pepper. After the meat is browned, stir in the minced garlic and cook until fragrant. Set aside. Back to the potatoes, drain, and transfer them to a bowl, then mash them with a ricer.

Step 2

After you mash the potatoes, add the melted butter, warm milk, and salt. Take your hand mixer and start to mix them all together. Once they are combined, add half of your shredded cheese and fold it in with a spatula. After this, add the Italian sausage mixture and mix them together. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish and spread them evenly. Add the remaining shredded cheese over the top. Place it in the preheated oven, and bake for 20 minutes, then broil for two minutes for a crispy top layer.
