Double Baked Mashed Potatoes

Double Baked Mashed Potatoes

Today, for the first time, I made double baked mashed potatoes. Those who know me well know I don't really like to cook! At my job, at a school/residential for special needs students, I've had to cook. In the past 7 months I've cooked bacon for the first time, made shepard's pie, among other meals I've never prepared before. I also stuck to the regular things (regular=easy) I had made for myself in the past, grilled cheese, pasta, egg salad, etc. I also have made fudge and other candy. Anyway, one of my co-workers does most of the cooking (phew!) but I've watched her. She never reads measurements (well when it comes to baking sweets, she does) and she sort of just wings it but everything always tastes good. Im addicted to her easy pasta salad, apple cinnamon cake with cream cheese frosting, among other things. One of those things was double baked potatoes. I'd never heard of the dish. It's easy and very yummy and today I made my first batch ever! They are going to go along with some steak on the grill (our neighbors got steak). My coworker added american cheese and cream cheese, plus butter and milk to the potatoes when she was mashing them and it tasted really good--so I knew I'd have to try this myself. On top I've sprinkled Paprika. Mmm:) Now, I am not sure if this inspires me to cook or not but hopefully everyone likes my creamy double baked mashed potato goodness:)
