Cheesy Broccoli Mashed Potatoes

Cheesy Broccoli Mashed Potatoes

Adding broccoli and cheese to mashed potatoes is a neat twist. Plus it seriously reduces the calories when compared to traditional mashed potatoes. It's a great way to add some extra veggies for those extra picky kids.

1 pound potatoes
washed and cut into wedges (peel if you must)
¾ pound broccoli florets
¾ cup fontina cheese
or cheddar works very well too
½ cup milk
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper


Steam the potatoes (or use a steamer) in a pot fitted with a steaming flower for 10 minutes.

In a small pot heat up the milk.

Add the broccoli and continue steaming for 7 minutes until the broccoli and potatoes are tender.

Place the potatoes and broccoli into a bowl.

Add the cheese and warmed milk and coarsely mash with a potato masher.

Add salt and pepper, mix, taste and adjust seasonings. Serve.



You can use any of your favorite cheese, an old cheddar works very well along with any creamy cheese like fontina.

This mashed potatoes were absolutely one of the our favorite. It was so quick and easy to make, and it turned out creamy, cheesy, smooth and so flavorful. Broccoli made the dish look very bright and gave the very refreshing taste. Fotina added the nice cheesy flavor. You can always add a little bit raw garlic or steam the potatoes with several garlic cloves, then mash them all together. Definitely a five stars recipe!
