Miriam's Mashed Potatoes
An impressive mashed potato dish!
- 6 large baking potatoes
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/4 cup 2% milk
- 1/2 cup whipping cream
- 4 tbls grated American cheese
Peel potatoes and cook until done.
Drain and mash, adding the butter and milk. Beat until fluffy.
Spoon into a greased casserole, beat the whipping cream until stiff and spread over the potatoes.
Scatter the grated cheese on top and dash a bit of paprike over the whipped cream.
Bake at 350° until topping is golden.
Instead of whipping the cream by hand or with a mixer, I have a beautiful, stainless steel whipped cream dispenser with nitrous oxide chargers that makes perfect whipped cream in less than a minute making this chore simple.
I use whatever grated cheese I have on hand. Colby Jack will work just as well as American, or try Gruyere or another hard European cheese.
I am currently trying to use oat milk instead of dairy 2% and the results were just as good.
