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

Mashed potatoes pair perfectly with certain meals, like steak, fried chicken, and meatloaf. This super easy recipe is so tasty and a great side dish for these types of meals.


  • 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
  • Sea salt and fresh ground white pepper to taste


    1. Wash the potatoes and chop them into small pieces.
    2. Rinse well in a colander and then place in a large pot.
    3. Cover with water and lid and bring to a  boil. Cook for 20 minutes or until soft.
    4. Drain water, leaving potatoes in the pot.
    5. Add butter, cream, and garlic and mash together using a hand masher or a hand-held mixer on low speed.
    6. When the potatoes are smooth, add the cheddar cheese, parsley, salt, and pepper.
