Cheddar Smashed Potatoes

Cheddar Smashed Potatoes (Adapted from Everyday Food)

1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, cut into 1" chunks
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
2 ounces shredded sharp white cheddar
additional salt and fresh ground black pepper

In a medium saucepan, add potatoes and enough water to cover. Stir in salt - bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and place the potatoes back into the pot - stir the potatoes for about 1 minute to let the excess moisture evaporate. Remove from the heat and set aside.

In a small saucepan, bring milk and butter to a simmer over medium. Pour about half of the mixture into the potatoes and mash until desired consistency, adding enough of the remaining milk mixture if needed. Stir in cheddar - season to taste with salt and fresh ground black pepper.

Makes about 4 servings.
