Cheesy Mashed Potatoes 

Prep time: 10 Minutes Cook Time: 20 Minutes Ready in: 30 minutes

Introduction:

If your mashed potatoes are needing something special added just try this recipe.  The Sharp Cheddar cheese adds a special flavor and they will be asking what you did to the potatoes.

Ingredients:

  1. 6 medium sized potatoes
  2. ¼ cup milk
  3. 6 Tablespoons butter or margarine
  4. 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (we use sharp)

Directions:

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring to boil 6 cups of water.
  2. Peel and evenly chop potatoes.  Boil potatoes until soft when pricked with a fork.
  3. Drain water from boiled-chopped potatoes and return to pan.  With a potato smasher or hand mixer, mash potatoes until smooth. Add butter and cheese.  Mix until butter has melted through.  Add milk.  Stir with spoon.  A little more milk may be added if you need to stretch the potatoes for more people or you like your mashed potatoes creamy.

Serve immediately

 

Conclusion:

Creamy filling goodness with the hint of cheese.  Excellent side to serve with any main entrée or can be used as a small lunch.  These are quick and easy after boiling your potatoes, it only take a couple of minutes to through these together.  Run a potato masher through them a few times, dump in your ingredients and you’ve got a gourmet side dish.  Potato mashers are quicker to get out than a hand mixer.  We keep ours in a large jar with other large utensils like spatulas and whisks.  You can pick up a cheap one.  Just click on the picture.
