Very good! And so easy. A must try for anyone who loves potatoes! This is a keeper! Next time I will add some bacon bits to see how that will be. I am sure yummy! Thanks for a crowd pleasing recipe!

This recipe was very easy to make and tasted great! I left the potatoes unpeeled for more texture. I like that there is not too much butter in this, yet it is still yummy comfort food. The addition of cheese makes these different from other mashed potatoes I've tried. Thanks so much for posting this easy recipe, I'll be making it again!
