Cream Cheese Potato Pie

Prep: 15 minutes, plus baking
Yield: 4 servings

1 egg, beaten
1 10 oz package cream cheese, softened
3 cups mashed potatoes
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup Italian bread crumbs
2 Tablespoons sweet basil
3/4 Teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 cup shredded cheese

Stir egg and cream cheese together until well mixed. Cream potatoes and milk together.
Add both these mixtures to the same bowl, along with bread crumbs and spices. Mix
until creamy and smooth. Turn into greased 8-inch pie pan and smooth out evenly. You can also
choose to make a nice pie crust to line the pan with, but it's just as good without the crust. Bake
at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until pie puffs up a little and starts to brown slightly. Remove from
oven, top with shredded cheese, and allow to cool before serving. Very filling, and kids love it!

How Kids Can Help:
Kids can measure & dump ingredients. Older kids can help grate cheese.
