Looking for something rich and robust for a special meal? Every now and then you need to break out the butter and cheese to make something downright decadent. I made these specially for my DH one night when he asked for something different instead of the usual pasta and rice. Mmmmm.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash potatoes and cut in chunks. Load into a large pot, add the garlic, and just barely cover with water.
  2. Bring to a boil and simmer 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  3. Put half the butter, half the parsley, and half the Parmesan onto the potatoes along with salt and pepper as desired. Smash and stir.
  4. Add the rest of the butter, parsley, and Parmesan. Smash and stir again until the potatoes are well broken up and the cheese is well mixed inches.
  5. Redskin potatoes shouldn't need any milk, but if you used a drier-fleshed type add milk as required.
