For this recipe, we will mix the mashed potatoes with some pumpkin puree, parmesan cheese, and a few spices. Some people find Thyme overpowering so you may want to adjust accordingly.

I use Russet Potatoes for this recipe but you can also use White Potatoes. Russets are probably the most common and easiest to find so I suggest you think we that if you can.

Cooking times will vary based on your oven, placement of the oven rack, size of the potatoes, etc. so I suggest you check your potatoes for doneness around the 50-minute mark for the first bake. The second bake should not take more than 10 minutes.
