These are a wonderful addition to a roast, or grilled steak. I got it from Easy Everyday Cooking, and changed it slightly to suit my love for cheese.

I loved the taste of onion in this. But when I was mashing them it was too thick. I added whole milk maybe 1/4 cup. Even if I used shar cheddar cheese, we though that they were bland a little bit. Something was missing. They are good but for us, they need something more, and a lighter consistency. Thanks Kayne for posting. Made for Holiday tag

There was some dithering here as to whether these potatoes should get four or five stars. Well, I am the cook and I say five. Easy to make, even easier to eat. Instead of onions, I used scallions that were on hand. Made for Pick a Chef. Thanks aussiekarin for another recipe that will be added to my repertoire.
