Cheddar Cheese Potatoes™

This is a great side dish to serve at your Thanksgiving table. You can adjust the amount of milk to taste.

I've used reduced fat milk and cheddar cheese but you can also use vegan milk, vegan butter and vegan cheese if desired too.


6 medium potatoes (rinsed and quartered)
1/2 - 3/ 4 c. milk (skim or low fat)
2 - 3 T. butter to taste
1/8 tsp salt (optional)
1/4 tsp pepper
1 - 2 cloves garlic (crushed and chopped)
1/8 - 2/3 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Rinse potatoes and cut into quarters. 

Place potatoes in pot with water and boil for 20 minutes or until done.

Put milk and garlic into microwave safe cup and microwave for 2-3 minutes.

Drain water from potatoes in colander.

Transfer potatoes back to pot. Mash with potato masher.

While mashing add butter, salt, pepper, 1/4 c of the cheese and milk. 

You can adjust the milk to the desired consistency of potatoes. Mash until smooth.

Turn on broiler to high.

Sprinkle remaining cheese evenly over potatoes. 

Place potatoes in oven and broil for 5 - 7 minutes or until cheese is golden.

Serves 6
