Cheesy Smashed Potatoes & Cauliflower

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

I hate cauliflower, but I'll eat it if it's disguised well enough!


  1. Place potatoes and fresh cauliflower florets in a pot and cover with water (if using frozen florets, don't add them yet!).
  2. Bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender (if using frozen cauliflower, add them 10-15 minutes into cooking time).
  3. Drain vegetables and return to pan. Add sour cream and mash until vegetable mixture is light and fluffy. Stir in cheese until it melts.

I actually had this recipe in one of my Kraft Food & Family magazines. It is really good, and hard to tell that it's cauliflower. I am not a huge fan of mashed potatoes, and this is a bit healthier anyway, so it's perfect! I didn't have sour cream, so I just used 1/4 cup fat-free milk, and it worked fine. I made this to go with Mom's Best Ever Turkey Meatloaf.

Cheesy and creamy goodness. The cauliflower added a bit of a "hmm" factor, as when mashed really well into the potatoes, it is hard to detect exactly what the extra flavor is between the cheese and the potatoes. Sour cream makes them extra creamy :)
