Red Bliss Mashed Potatoes

Mashed Potatoes are the perfect side for steak.  My holiday mashed potato recipe is a huge hit, but it isn't very healthy, so when it isn't a special occassion I use another recipe.  These potatoes are very easy to make and are still good enough to eat without gravy.

You will need:
5 medium Red Bliss Potatoes, chopped
1/4 cup Cheese - I used a reduced fat blend of chedder, monteray jack and mozzarella
2 tablespoons Slim Milk
2 teaspoons salt
pepper to taste
1/2 cup Fat Free Sour Cream
1 tablespoon butter

Step 1:
Rise and chop the potatoes.  Then place in a pot of water and bring to a boil.  Bowl for about 15 minutes, until the potatoes are soft.

Step 2:
Drain the potatoes.  Then add the butter and cheese.  I always add the ingredients that need to melt first - before I add any other cold ingredients.  Stir a little to get the cheese and butter to melt.  Then add the salt, pepper, milk and sour cream.  Mix with either a fork (if you like them a little chunky), or an electric mixer (if you prefer them smooth).
