  • Author: Audra
  • Yield: 6 1x


  • 8 small potatoes
  • 1/2 cup milk (add more if needed)
  • 1/3 cup of butter or refined coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup of mild cheddar (I use red wax mild cheddar)
  • 1 tsp garlic & herb seasoning (I use McCormick)
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/41/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1 TBSP fresh chopped chives


  1. Peel and rinse potatoes. If your potatoes are not the same size when peeling, cut them until they are approximately the same size so they all cook evenly.
  2. Add potatoes to a large stock pot and add just enough water to cover the potatoes.
  3. Gently boil potatoes until you are able to easily poke a fork through them.
  4. Then drain potatoes in a colander.
  5. Transfer the potatoes to a mixing bowl and add butter, cheese, garlic and herb, salt, pepper, and chives.
  6. With a potato masher, mash potatoes while slowly pouring in the milk. Add a little milk at a time. You may need more or less depending on the size of your potatoes. Stir potatoes to combine well.
  7. Enjoy!


If you have larger potatoes you may need to add a bit more milk, butter, cheese, and seasonings.Tip: Ever wonder how many potatoes to fix for your family or guests? Peel approximately one potato per person and you should always have enough potatoes for your dinner. I usually add a few extra potatoes for people who want seconds or leftovers.
