1. If potatoes are large, cut in quarters. Cook potatoes until tender in boiling, salted water. Drain and place cooked potatoes in the large bowl of an electric mixer. Add sour cream, 5 tablespoons butter, salt and pepper.
2. Beat potato mixture until light and fluffy on low speed of an electric beater. Pile lightly into a buttered 2-quart casserole dish. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
3. Bring casserole out of refrigerator 1/2 hour before cooking. Bake, covered, in a preheated 325-degree oven about 1 hour or until heated through.
4. Toss breadcrumbs with remaining 1 tablespoon butter, which has been melted, and sprinkle buttered crumbs over potatoes. Continue baking, uncovered, about 30 minutes longer.
