Parmesan Rosemary Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Parmesan Rosemary Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Now that the weather is cooler here in Vermont, I’ve begun making more roasts in the oven.  One of my favorite side dishes to have with a roast is mashed potatoes.  There are so many different things that you can add to your mashed potatoes recipe that the possibilities are really almost endless.  One of our favorite additions to our mashed potatoes recipes is cheese. You can completely change the taste of the mashed potatoes depending on which type of cheese you add.  I’ve added Parmesan, cheddar, Monterey Jack, and Colby cheeses.  The combination of garlic, Parmesan cheese, and rosemary in this mashed potatoes recipe is really amazing.  I’ve chosen to use skim milk in my version but you could easy substitute heavy cream instead of you’re not watching your calories.  This is the perfect side dish for your holiday meal whether that’s Christmas or Thanksgiving because it’s just different enough from traditional mashed potatoes to make it stand out.

  5. I do love mashed potatoes but do not make them often enough.  I usually just use butter and salt, but this is a terrific way to prepare them.  I am sure the Parmesan adds a delicious flavor too.
