Cheddar Mashed Potatoes
This was the "frosting" for my turkey meatloaf cupcakes it'd be a great side dish on it's own though too- especially with Thanksgiving coming up, I think this would be divine with gravy!!
Here's what you'll need
12 small youkon gold potatoes boiled
1 T butter
1 big handful shredded cheddar
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1/4 cup milk
salt & peppa
Wash the potatoes.
Bring a large pot of water (like 10-12 cups) on medium-high heat. Add whole, unpeeled potatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer about 20 minutes, untill potatoes are totally soft- poke em with a fork to test.
Drain water, put hot potatoes in a large bowl, add butter, milk and yogurt. Mash well, by hand with a potato masher (you can also do this in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment- I wanted em lumpy though).
Let cool about 5 minutes.
Mix in the cheese- add salt & pepper to taste.
