Recently had the white cheddar mashed potatoes at BJ's Brewhouse and loved them.
Anyone have the recipe?

Grate some cheddar and mix it into the potatoes as they're being mashed, along with the butter, cream, salt and pepper?

Earlier in this thread, I mention a new variety of masher, "Huckleberry Gold". I just dug some as baby new potatoes. I also dug, Red Gold, Purple Viking, and Red Norland. All are excellent, and have subtle differences, but the Huckleberry Gold is, IMO, not up to the hype........... 
Update, Labor Day weekend. The Huckleberry Golds are now mature (vice the baby new spuds that I reported on earlier).  The Huckleberry Golds, are indeed, uniquely delicious as mashed potatoes. I forsee a hit. They will not be in great supply for a few years, but if you see them, you should try them. Under my conditions, they don't get very big, being about the same size as "Red Gold". Those of you who hate to peel may see that as a disadvantage. I leave most of the skin on.

I am fond of Mashed Potatoes, here is a simple recipe of Mashed Potatoes.
Perfect Mashed Potatoes Recipe:
INGREDIENTS:
1 1/2 lbs yukon gold potatoes, peeled and quartered length-wise1/2 teaspoon salt4 Tbsp heavy cream2 Tbsp butter1 Tbsp milkSalt and Pepper
METHOD:
1 Put potatoes into a saucepan. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add water until potatoes are covered. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15-20 minutes, or until done - a fork can easily be poked through them.
2 Warm cream and melt butter, together, either in microwave or in a pan on the stove. Drain water from potatoes. Put hot potatoes into a bowl. Add cream and melted butter. Use potato masher to mash potatoes until well mashed. Use a strong spoon to beat further, adding milk to achieve the consistency you desire. (Do not over-beat or your potatoes will get gluey.) Salt and pepper to taste.

Hey Mosca, I like your style! Mashed potatoes and sauerkraut sounds awesome! Im Going to try this out for sure. Do you recommend kraut out of a can or would you make it from scratch?

It's a Pennsylvania Thang!
Pork Roast cooked in Sauerkraut with beer, some sliced onions and caraway seeds and served with mashed potatoes.
I make a hole in my mashed potatoes, add some butter, fill it with sauerkraut and dig in!

And, ...!!!... not enough cream or butter   ... too much water to cook in; only need enough to steam the potatoes done (soft) with little to no water left, not drown the potatoes; this keeps all the potato flavor;   ... the addition of powered milk would be great to.
 
How much butter & margarine to add?     Add an 'UN-godly' amount, then when you think it is right, add MORE. Then adjust consistency with milk.  I use equal parts butter & margarine.
 
A few months ago I got a compliment on my mash potatoes from an old professional cook: "the best damn mash potatoes I every eat"  ......

In a 4 gt pan, I use 1/2 envelope of powered milk.  When everything is as I want it, I then ADJUST CONSTANCY with regular milk if needed. ... not water ...

Tom Green (the comedian / actor) once said it and it's true.. when he goes out to a diner he finds that you can often substitute mashed potatoes instead of fries. Like 2 times out of 10 he finishes his fries, but like 9 times out of 10 he finishes his mashed potatoes.

A newspaper story a few days ago told where to skimp a Thanksgiving. It said to use cheap russets, but lots of cream. I disagree. Russetts are better for baking. For mashed I like a potato that whips up with a waxy sheen. If they cost a little more, so what? They are still cheap, and a lot of folks in this thread would agree that the mashers are an important part of the meal. At Thanksgiving, I'd rather skimp with a frozen turkey than to have average mashed potatoes.

Thanksgiving should be a day without skimps or shortcuts.


The cream is most likely more expensive than the potatoes.

Noy having read all the other posts on this topic, my 2 cents-Instead of salt, use granulated chicken boullion, gives the taters anextra good flavor!

I love mashed potatoes with meatloaf. Anytime I make meatloaf, I am always sure to include mashed potatoes because I like to eat them together.
