Grandma's Cheesy Mashed Potatoes

Okay....so the picture DOES NOT do these yummy cheesy potatoes justice, I apologize...just KNOW that these potatoes are THE BEST of their kind. Mashed potatoes are awesome and cheese is even better, you combine the two ingredients and you have HEAVEN on your plate. My kids think that their Grandma Wilkerson makes the best Cheesy Mashed Potatoes in the world...I happen to agree. There isn't a dinner that we eat at Grandma's house that the kids don't ask me before hand if "we are going to eat Cheesy Mashed Potatoes". Its one of those "comfort foods" that just makes them think of their sweet grandma and how much they love and appreciate her. I am sure this delectable dish will be made and gobbled up by her family for generations to come. You have to give it a try!!!! YOU won't be disappointed, I promise!

Grandma's Cheesy Mashed Potatoes

 5 lb. potatoes, peeled, cubed
1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
1 cube butter
1-2 c. grated cheddar cheese

Boil potatoes in a LARGE sauce pan until they are soft. Drain ALL water off of potatoes. Put hot potatoes in a LARGE bowl. Add remaining ingredients and beat with electric beaters, Kitchen Aide   OR smash with a potato smasher (if you are really tough)....but I highly recommend something HIGH powered and electric. Serve while hot. These mashed potatoes are just as good the second time as they are the first time so leftovers aren't a problem. If you don't want as many potatoes....cut the recipe in half. We like them served with ANYTHING...but ham is one of our favorite "side dishes" when eating these yummy taters....oh yum!

Happy Cooking~

  1. We just had some yummy cheesy mashed potatoes for dinner last night!But I just made my recipe up and it does not have cream cheese. Maybe I will have to try this recipe-if I dare. I probably will not be able to control myself.
