Mashed Potato and Green Bean Loaf

Featuring smooth, creamy mashed potatoes studded with green beans, and accentuated with parmesan cheese, this is the ultimate way to a potato lover’s heart. We’ve kept ours vegetarian but you could add diced bacon too.

How long will it take?

1 ½ hours

What’s the serving size?

Serves 6


What do I need?

  • 6 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped into a small dice
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 free range eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large brown onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups green beans, chopped into 1 centimetre pieces
  • 1 cup parmesan, grated

How do I make it?

  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Grease and line a 24cm x 13cm x 6.5cm loaf pan.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Add potatoes to the water and cook until they are tender. Remove from heat and drain. Mash potatoes with 2 tablespoons butter, milk, eggs, salt and pepper until smooth and creamy, then set aside to cool.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat and add onion. Cook until the onion has softened, then add garlic and cook for a further 1 minutes. Add chopped beans and cook for a further 2 to 3 minutes, then remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  5. Combine onions, garlic and bean mixture with the mashed potatoes and three-quarters of the parmesan cheese.
  6. Spread the mixture into the loaf pan and use a fork to “rough up” the top. Sprinkle the remaining parmesan over the top.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the top is golden brown and the loaf is heated all the way through.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes before removing from the pan.
  9. Serve cut into slices.
