Nothing beats good homemade mashed potatoes. Paired with a grass fed steak, you’ve got a fantastic steak dinner without ever stepping foot into a steak house!
These potatoes are one of my hubby’s favorite sides. He is a meat and potatoes kind of guy — I think he’d live on mashed potatoes if I’d let him.
One interesting note about this recipe. They freeze really well. I make this recipe in quadruple batches and then portion them up in individual servings for fast sides during the busy week.
Garlic Cheddar Mashed Potatoes
I have linked to the products from my affiliate partners that I personally use and recommend.
- 5 large red potatoes
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup cream
- 1/4 cup raw milk cheddar cheese (I like sharp for an added kick)
- 1 teaspoon fresh garlic
- 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
- Salt and fresh ground white pepper to taste
Wash the potatoes and chop into small pieces. Rinse well in a colander and then place in large pot. Cover with water and lid and bring to a boil. Cook for 20 minutes or until soft. Drain water, leaving potatoes in pot. Add butter, cream, and garlic and mash together using a hand masher or a hand-held mixer on low speed. When the potatoes are smooth, add the cheddar cheese, parsley, salt and pepper.
