Just because the potato is a simple ingredient doesn’t mean The Potato Cookbook is a simple collection of recipes. Join Australian cookbook author and culinary instructor Dale Whybrow and discover your favorite new spud preparations, like this comforting mashed potato bake that’s easy to make for a crowd. 

When you can’t decide if you’d like mashed potato or your favorite baked potato — the one with oodles of cheese, sour cream and bacon — this is the answer. Serve this with sausages and it’s a real winner. Use floury (starchy or roasting) potatoes such as Idaho or Russet.
