Dreamy Mash Potatoes

Published Friday, 20 May, 2011 by Lisa Jane MacKay

Good occumpliment for mains =)



  • Large bag of baby new potatoes
  • Half a block of chedder cheese (or more, or less depending how cheesy you like things)
  • Half a mug of milk
  • 3 or 4 spoons of butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste (ground black pepper is far far far nicer than the powder stuff so use that!)


1) Peel the potatoes and chope into small pieces. Place them on the boil.

2) Whilst waiting for the potatoes to soften grate the cheese

3) Once the potatoes have softened remove them from the boild, drain the water and put them back in the pot.

4) Add the cheese milk and butter and blend to form a smooth mash =)

*If you dont have a hand blender or a blitzer just let the potatoes boil for longer until they start to fall appart and then just use a fork to mash them up before adding the milk and cheese. This makes its less smooth but tbh i prefare lumpy-ish mash to pure smooth mash coz im wiered like that haha*

I keep meening to try use a little bit of smoked cheese with the chedder to mix things up a bit but ive yet to bother trying it. If i do il let you know how it goes =)

The only downside to this recipie is that its a bit of a faff to make =/ BUT if your having a mate over for dinner they can always give you a wee hand with the peeling ans washing of the potaoes :)

Enjoy =)
