1/4 cup New Zealand Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated*        $0.75
2 gloves garlic, minced                                                                                 $0.20
1 1/2 tablespoons butter                                                                              $0.08

Peel the potatoes and cut them into smaller chunks. Put the potatoes in a saucepan with 4-5 cups of water. Bring the water to a boil on the stove (adding some crushed sea salt before it comes to a boil.) Let this boil for 15-20 minutes, or until it is easy to stick a fork in the biggest potato chunk.
Drain the potatoes and add them to a mixing bowl. Mash them with the rest of the ingredients and serve immediately (or keep them as warm as you can in the meantime.) ENJOY!

  1. Nick and I made your yummy mashed potatoes last night! I didn’t have any cheddar cheese, so I added provolone. I thought you’d approve of the frugal move 🙂 Delicious all around! Love you!
