Cheese and Onion Mashed Potatoes

Today I thought I’d share just a simple everyday recipe we’ve been enjoying lately. Quite possibly the best way to make mash ever; with extra mature cheddar and spring onions. Β Basically like the potato scones I posted recently, but without the flour.

Here we had these with a drizzle of avocado oil, gluten free sausages (from Lidl) and peas. πŸ™‚

Btw feel free to use any cheese you want. I tend to use extra mature cheddar most of the time, but I bet it would be great with Gouda, edam, gruyère, emmental, etc.

As a bonus, adding cheese also gives mash a little boost of nutrition. Including some calcium, B12 and vitamin A (retinol). πŸ™‚

Recipe type: Sides
Cuisine: British
Serves: 2 servings (multiply as needed)
Ingredients
  • 250-300g potatoes
  • 25g butter
  • 40g extra mature cheddar
  • 2-3 spring onions
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Milk (just a splash / to taste)
Notes
This is a small recipe that yields only 2 servings so multiply it as needed.

Directions

COOK THE POTATOES:

  1. Peel and dice the potatoes (the smaller they are, the quicker they’ll cook).
  2. Boil in a saucepan, with a generous dash of salt, until the potatoes are fully cooked and quite soft (about 10 minutes).Β Then drain them in a colander.

Β 

MAKE THE MASH:

  1. Meanwhile, chop the spring onions very finely and grate the cheese.
  2. Transfer the cooked potatoes, still very hot, into a large bowl along with the butter and mash until smooth and lump free.
  3. Stir in the spring onion and cheese as well as a good dash salt (to taste) and mix well.
  4. Then finally, add a splash of milk. Just enough to make the mash a little creamier.
