Scalloped Mashed Potatoes


  • 1 package of TJ's quattro formaggio scalloped potatoes
  • 1 bag TJ's frozen mashed potatoes
  • ⅓ cup chicken stock
  • 3 tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Put 20 of the frozen mashed potato medallions (don't worry, you'll understand when you open the package) in a pot and add the stock. Heat at medium until medallions are softened, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the scalloped potatoes and stir well. That was super-easy! Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper to taste (don't go crazy, they're pre-seasoned).
  • When potatoes are evenly combined, transfer to ovenproof dish. Mix breadcrumbs and melted butter together and sprinkle on top.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden, at 350 degrees. Make up an elaborate lie about how long they took.
