Recipe Ingredients for PA Dutch Potato Filling

10 cups Yukon Gold potatoes, washed and cut into large chunks
2 cups raw celery, washed and cut into 1/2" pieces
2 small cooking onions, peeled and cut into 1/2" pieces
2 wheat hot dog buns, cut into 1/2" cubes
3/4 stick butter, cut into chunks
2 cups 1% milk
1 egg
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp dried parsley
1 tbsp black pepper

Recipe Directions for PA Dutch Potato Filling

  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees.

  2. Put a large pot of water on to boil.

  3. When the water is boiling, carefully add the potatoes. Cover, venting the lid, and allow to boil.

  4. While the potatoes are boiling, put a large frying pan on medium-high heat.

  5. When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp of the butter.

  6. When the butter is melted, add the celery and onions.

  7. Stir and cook celery and onions until they are softened, and the onions are just beginning to brown. Then, add the bread cubes.

  8. Stir the bread cubes with the celery and onions. When the excess butter is absorbed into the bread, remove pan from heat and set aside.

  9. Test the potatoes with a sharp knife. When they are soft and ready to mash, carefully drain the water from the pot.

  10. Use a potato masher to mash the potatoes. Add the butter a chunk at a time until all of it is incorporated.

  11. When all the large potato chunks are broken down, begin adding the milk, a little at a time, to create desired texture.

  12. When the potatoes are completely mashed and smooth, stir in the egg, seasonings, and celery & onion mixture.

  13. Transfer the filling to a large baking dish. Place the baking dish uncovered in the oven. Allow to bake for at least 10 minutes, or until the potato tips are browned.
