Cheddar Mashed Potatoes

I love mashed potatoes.  Whenever we have a large family dinner i'm in charge of brining them.  I also love cheese.  There is something about the creamy potatoes and the bite of the cheddar cheese.  It's amazing.  My mom loves to make her potatoes with a little bit of chicken or beef stock to make them richer. Just something to think about.

Cheddar Mashed Potatoes:

3 large Idaho potatoes
1/3 stick of butter
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup sour cream
1/4 cup half-n-half or cream
Salt and Pepper to taste

Cut up potatoes into cubes and boil until soft.

Using a stand mixer or a hand held potato masher mash the potatoes until they are at the consistancy that you like.

Add half-n-half, sour cream, salt and pepper, cheddar cheese, and butter.  Mix everything together so the butter and cheese melt.

Depending on what's going on with the weather and potatoes you have at the time you're making this you might need to add a little more or a little less butter, sour cream, or half-n-half.  Just keep tasting them until they are how you like it.
