Step 1

Heat oven to 400°F.

In 2 quart casserole, mix potatoes, sauce mix, boiling water, half-and-half and butter. Stir in remaining potato ingredients. Bake uncovered 35 minutes.

In small bowl, mix bread crumbs and butter; sprinkle over top. Bake 8 minutes longer or until topping is golden.

Sprinkle with parsley. Let stand 5 minutes before serving (sauce will thicken as it stands).

Prep your potatoes up to step 3 and refrigerate them covered for up to 24 hours.

No Jack cheese? Cheddar makes a flavorful stand in.
