Cheddar Cheese Mashed Potatoes


A blend of American and Cheddar cheeses make these well seasoned mashed potatoes extra special.


  • 4 large baking potatoes, about 2 pounds, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup heated milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 4 ounces shredded process American cheese
  • 4 ounces shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • pinch ground red pepper


Cook potatoes in boiling water until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain well.

Put potatoes back in saucepan; stir over low heat until dry, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Mash, adding about 1/2 cup milk and the 2 tablespoons butter. Add grated cheese and seasonings. Beat with a spoon, adding remaining milk until desired consistency is reached.
Serves 4.
