Cheesy, Creamy, Yummy Mashed Potatoes

This is not diet food but it is so good that it should be used for a spluge if you are counting calories.  I grew up loving mashed potatoes but I never made them as rich as this recipe did and I am guessing that there are many more with more fats added.  I did cut back on the butter and used a half of a stick instead of a full one.  For me, that seemed like way too much but for this one time, it was well worth  it.  Even hubby who usually does not appreciate much fat in a dish loved this one.

Cheesy, Creamy, Yummy Mashed Potatoes (adapted from Nancy Fuller of Food Network)


3 poundst potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
4 tablespoons  butter
1/2 cup milk
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar or a little more


Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. 

Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to simmer. 

Cook until the potatoes are fork tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Drain.

Return the potatoes to the pot and add the butter, milk and some salt and pepper. 

Mash the potatoes to the desired consistency. 

While still hot, fold the cheese into the mash and stir to melt.

Eat and enjoy.
