Cheddar and Chive Mashed Potatoes

Cheddar and Chive Mashed Potatoes

When someone else is hosting dinner, there's often the question of "What can I bring?" Offer to share these potluck aged cheddar potatoes; they not only taste amazing but travel well, too!



  1. Place potatoes in 3-quart slow cooker. Pour in water. Dot with cream cheese and butter. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4-5 hours or on LOW for 8-9 hours until potatoes are tender.
  2. Transfer all ingredients from slow cooker to a large bowl; mash potato mixture until smooth. Stir in 1 cup cheddar, cream, chives, salt and pepper.
  3. Return potatoes to a lightly greased slow cooker. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar. Cover and cook on HIGHI until cheese is melted, about 10-15 minutes.
  4. Serve immediately, or use warm setting to keep potatoes warm for up to 4 hours.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings

Any brand of aged or sharp Wisconsin cheddar can be used.

If traveling with this dish, sprinkle with the remaining cheddar before transporting. Upon arrival, finish cooking the potatoes until the cheese is melted, about 10-15 minutes.

Hook's One Year Sharp Cheddar has a nice flavor; it's a little sharper than a medium cheddar. After cooking, the aged cheddar gives a rich, cheesy flavor to the potatoes.
