Mashed Potatoes

"This is a recipe my daughter Heather came up with, though when she makes it she adds more butter and cheese than what I've stated. When I say spring onion I'm referring to the one without the onion on the end. I think Americans call it scallions and it is also known as green onions. You could try different cheeses."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Peel and cut potatoes into large chunks; place in a pot; cover with cold water; cook over medium heat until tender but still holding their shape.

Step 2

While the potatoes are cooking, grate the cheeses, finely slice the spring onion, and chop the ham into small pieces.

Step 3

Warm the milk.

Step 4

Drain potatoes; return to the stove for a minute or two to dry out the water.

Step 5

Mash potatoes; add the butter and warm milk. You should have a smooth thick mixture.

Step 6

Add the Cheddar and Parmesan cheeses, spring onion, ham, and salt and pepper to taste; mix well with the potatoes.

I wish I could give this 5 stars but I thought it was a bit dry. I'll make it again, but next time will add more milk. I did use real bacon bits instead of ham, but otherwise stuck to the recipe.

I made this recipe on 4/10 as a side for mine and my SO's Dinner,but most importantly for the " Pick Me " game. Except for not having the onion and using the Parmesan Cheese in the can,the recipe was made as it was written. I did however use more ham than the recipe called for. ;) As for the taste,both my SO and myself thought it was very,very close to a Loaded Baked Potato. Thanks for taking the time to make and post this recipe that will be made again. " Keep Smiling :) "

These mashed potatoes have a great consistency. For the cheese I used a Monterey Jack and the parmesan. I did add less ham than it asked for, maybe next time I woul omit it just to have a meatless side. We all enjoyed them, thanks!
