Homemade cheesy mashed potatoes
An easy recipe for my homemade cheesy mashed potatoes. It's one of my family's favorite.
This is a similarty to cheddar cheese they had at Rimi groccery store. 6 slices for 30kr,- that is about 5.30 USdollars. It's so much cheaper buying grocceries in the States than in Norway. The prices on American brands are 3x more than in the US.
6-8 medium russet potatoes or red potatoes, peeled and cubed (I don't peel the potatoes because of the nutrition I would leave it on)
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper
2 tablespoon sour cream
1/2 cup mat fløte or heavy cream
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons margirine or unsalted butter
2 tablespoon chopped green onion or chives
Place the potatoes into a pot, add the bay leaf, 2 tablespoons salt. Cover with cold water and bring to boil and cook for 20-25 minutes or until very tender. Drain well, remove bay leaf.
While potatoes are cooling off, heat the heavy cream and butter in a small saucepan. Put potatoes into a bowl. Add the hot cream and season with salt, pepper, steak seasoning, sour cream, cheddar cheese mixed together with a spoon and add the green onion.
