Giving you a cheesy twist to a classic side, try our best PARMESAN MASHED POTATOES!

Just like you, we’re always looking for ways to create tasty food for our families and loved ones. Although we love our GARLIC MASHED POTATOES, we started thinking mashed potatoes could do with a re-think.

Thankfully the result of our experiment worked like a charm and we’re please to offer you this new and delicious way to make mashed potatoes. Because this dish is often thought of as a classic side, we wanted to stay somewhat faithful and keep it simple. Follow our step-by-step recipe and you’ll have great success.


Ingredients for Parmesan Mashed Potatoes


We found that potatoes with higher starch work best for a mashed recipe. Now although you might be tempted to use Russet potatoes which are high in starch, we like Yukon Golds better. Why? It’s a visual thing. You see when we discussed mashed potatoes we all agreed we love the buttery look of them. That got us thinking how the colour of Yukon Golds are just more appealing to that buttery quest.

Mashed potatoes are easy enough (heck, they even wrote a song about them), yet in this case, we enhance the mash with some serious flavour, compliments of Parmesan. Adding the cheese is a nice moment where we first get its aroma of it melting in with the potatoes, but the flavour – amazing!

If you’re excited to make PARMESAN MASHED POTATOES, we better give you something to serve them with. Try our EASY ROAST CHICKEN or our very popular SIRLOIN TIP ROAST. Finally, what about using these potatoes as a topper on another classic meal, a COTTAGE PIE. My goodness, scrumptious is on the way.

  • 6 tablespoons of butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup of 35% cream
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • white pepper to taste
