Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 lb. white potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 1 cup finely shredded, vegetarian-friendly cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley

Instructions

  • Peel and cube potatoes so that they are uniform in size.
  • Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with one inch of cold water.
  • Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to maintain a steady rolling boil. Cook until potatoes are tender all the way through (approximately 15-20 minutes). Be careful not to overcook or the potatoes will become too starchy.
  • Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.
  • Add butter and half-and-half. Mash with a potato masher until lumps are gone.
  • Stir in cheese, and then the garlic powder, salt and dried parsley.
  • Serve and enjoy!
