Broccoli and Cheddar Cheese Mashed Potatoes


What we have here is a great side dish. Perfect for any Holiday meal or just to
go with weeknight dinner. I have a thing for baked potatoes with broccoli and
cheese and one day I was thinking how could I make a mashed potato version?
I came up with this and it was truly awesome. I hope you enjoy!

 Broccoli and Cheddar Cheese Mashed Potatoes

1 - 5 pound bag yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut
1 large head fresh broccoli - cut into florets
4 ounces butter
3/4 cups of milk
3 ounces cream cheese
2 garlic cloves
salt and pepper
16 ounces of grated cheddar cheese, save some for top

1) Put cold water in a large pot put about 1 tablespoon salt in the water.
Add potatoes and garlic cloves and boil for about 45 minutes or until fork
tender. During the last 10 minutes of boiling add your broccoli and cook
in the potatoes until broccoli is soft but still bright green. Drain the water
and put back in pot. Add butter, cream cheese, milk, cheese, pepper & salt

  9. Sooo, since this has broccoli and potatoes, that's technically a vegetable side dish, right? :) I could eat shovels of these fluffy, fabulous mashed potatoes, Val!
