Cheesy Broccoli Mashed Potatoes
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Our kids love these and it is a great way to get some green vegetables in them.
1 1/2 pounds potato(es), russet, or any kind
1 pound broccoli florets
1 cup cheese, cheddar, shredded
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper, black, ground
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/3 cup milk, 1% fat
Peel and cut potatoes into large cubes. Place in a medium pot and cover with enough water to cover the potatoes plus an extra inch or so to cover the broccoli that is added later. Bring potatoes to a boil and cook for about 7 minutes until just about fork tender. Meanwhile, remove tough stems from broccoli and cut into small florets. Add to the boiling water when the potatoes are just about done. Cook for a minute or so until just tender. Drain water and place potatoes and broccoli in a large mixing bowl. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder and milk. Use a hand masher to chop and mash the broccoli and potatoes to a rough mash, adding more milk if necessary. Add shredded cheese and stir together. Serve warm.
