Baked Mashed Potatoes

Where do I even begin with these baked mashed potatoes? First off, how addicting are mashed potatoes anyway? It’s kind of unfair. You just can’t stop eating them. This recipe was inspired by the dish Chicken Parmesan that I love so much. I wanted to have the layer of pasta sauce and mozzarella cheese on top of my potoatoes! Is that so wrong? Lol! No, it is very right. We devoured this dish of potatoes. Take a look for yourself, enjoy!

    AH ! IT CAN’T BE BAD !! Thank you for sharing such different and easy recipe. I have to try once.

    Picky-Palate…you must try this spicy tomato oil from a little restaurant in Syracuse, Pastabilities. You can get it a certain grocery stores on the East Coast such as Wegmans or online:

    You must try it! People use it to dip bread, to put on pasta, and even to use a a pizza sauce. It is mouth watering!!

  4. S. @ The Captivating Life

    GENIUS. Why have I not thought of mashed potatoes with tomato sauce and cheese? That sounds so delicious! I’m going to make these soon…and I’ll be thinking about them until I do!

  5. Minnie@thelady8home

    Kids are going to fall in love with mashed potatoes!! What a genius idea!!! So simple, and brilliant. Classic!

  6. Julie @ Table for Two

  7. Ashley Bee (Quarter Life Crisis Cuisine)

    Woah! An awesome way to get the same kind of lasagna-ish feel without the gluten or noodles. Awesome! If you subbed for cauliflower, I bet you could make something similar too.

  8. Sues

    Wow, I’ve never even considered mashed potatoes with marinara sauce. But why the heck not?? I need this in my life!

  9. Grace

  10. Annie @ Annie's Noms

    Oh my word I love mashed potato and these look divine!! I’ve never thought to put marinara with my mash and then bake it – Woah, I need to make this! 😀

  11. carrian

    My favorite was chicken parm growing up. I requested it for every birthday dinner. I cannot wait to try out this mashed potato twist. BOOYAH!

  12. Dixie

    I’m curious about the marinara sauce. I think everything else looks fantastic, and believe me it is not a criticsm, I was curious why. I guess I was thinking more a white sauce type of thing rather than the marinara.

    1. Jenny

      My family loves red sauce, but you could use a white sauce if that’s more appealing to you 🙂

  13. Lauren

    These look AMAZiNG! I am (mild-ly) addicted to mashed potatoes… def. one of my major food groups… lol! I can’t wait to try this cheesy and saucey delectable pillows of greatness!

  14. Cookin Canuck

    What a fantastic idea, Jenny! Adding tomato sauce and melted cheese would be a huge hit at my house.

  15. Ellen @ The Baking Bluenoser

    I’ve heard of garlic mashed potatoes before, but never topped with pasta sauce and cheese! Looks wonderful, thanks for sharing!

  16. Blair Lonergan (The Seasoned Mom)

    Jenny,
    These look so good! I haven’t made mashed potatoes in ages because my kids haven’t seemed to like them. I think it’s a texture thing! Anyway, this recipe might just change their mind, since they’ll eat anything with marinara and cheese on it. I might just have to call them “pizza potatoes.” 🙂

  17. Erin @ Texanerin Baking

    I’m kind of in awe right now. This looks insanely good. I’m a potato addict and usually add cheese to mine, but adding sauce and then a LOAD of cheese sounds even better. Love this! Good job on making mashed potatoes even more addictive. 😉
