Potato Bake


  • 2 pounds russet potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Wash and prick potatoes, and bake for 40-50 minutes, or until soft.
  3. Remove from oven.
  4. Once they have cooled enough to handle, cut in half. Scoop the insides of the potatoes into a mixing bowl, discarding the skins.
  5. Whip the potatoes with butter and cream until smooth.
