A Tip:

As mentioned above, this recipe is a great way to use leftover mashed potatoes. Many potato recipes recommend a specific type of potato. Since mashed potatoes are typically best when made with russet potatoes it is likely that you will use those in this recipe.

Another great idea would be to use a colorful potato like Yukon Gold to add a buttery color to your potato bake.
