NOT My Nana's Mashed Potatoes

8 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 c milk
1 stick butter
2 tsp garlic
2 tsp onion powder
1/2 c shredded cheddar cheese
1 T parsley
s&p, tt
water to cover

  1. Cover cubed potatoes with water in pot and bring to boil. Reduce slightly and continue on high until potatoes are tender. Drain water.
  2. Add all other ingredients and combine with a mixer. Lumps are okay... though Northerners may not agree.
  3. Sprinkle with some more parsley if you like pretty things.

NOTE: Potatoes should be creamy, not thick - add more milk and butter to attain creamy consistency. And the more salt and pepper, the better...


  1. These sound delish! Is the garlic in powder form, fresh minced, or?

  2. I use garlic powder but some sauteed garlic would work too : )
