Cheesy Mashed Potatoes Video

This cheesy mashed potatoes video will show how to make this delightful recipe in the proper way without the need of any extravagant ingredients. Mashed potatoes are known for their soft texture, all around good taste and simplicity. They occupy a special place in the hearts of many that experienced their goodness. The video is going to present you one of the ways to enhance the already unique flavor of the potatoes.

As the video shows you will see that that it can be to your benefit if you put the potatoes in water after peeling and cutting them in order to soften them before you start cooking. As you wait for them to get soft, you can boil water in another container before adding the potatoes to save some cooking time. Please do not forget to add salt to the water before putting them to boil.

According to the video, the ingredients for this recipe are the following:

  • 6 potatoes
  • 1/2 cup half and half cream
  • 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • salt
  • pepper to taste

The following step in the cheesy mashed potatoes video is when you really have to pay attention if you want to avoid making mistakes in the recipe.
Once the potatoes have been in boiling water for more than 15 minutes they should be good enough for the next step. Since you will want them to be as hot as possible while you add the final touches, you can melt the butter on the microwave and then pour it over the potatoes; that way they can remain hotter than if you just add the cold butter over them. After you put the cream, some salt and pepper are used as condiments to give the recipe more spice.

Now a food processor can do wonders for the texture of the dish. You can use one at this point to make the potatoes creamier. Before continuing is important to taste a sample of the recipe to be sure it has the proper taste and consistency. You might need to add a bit more salt or pepper if is not to your liking. The dish is not complete without the addition of cheese. When you finally put it into the recipe, mix it with the rest and take a small bite to check it. When ready if you need to wait before serving keep it warm in the oven or use the microwave for some reheating.
