If you’re looking for some comfort food, these Cheesy Cheddar Mashed Cauliflower Potatoes dish will fit the bill.
Growing up in a home where my parents prepared Chinese food almost every night, mashed potatoes weren’t part of our dinner repertoire. My memory of mashed potatoes were the instant mashed potatoes my mom used to make her famous curry puffs (which by the way are absolutely delicious).
It wasn’t until I started cooking Thanksgiving dinner for my own family that I learned how to make mashed potatoes. I couldn’t believe how easy they were to make and how good they tasted. Over the past several years, I’ve incorporated steamed cauliflower and substituted chicken broth, low-fat buttermilk and low-fat milk in place of cream to make my mashed potatoes a bit lighter and healthier.
A few weeks ago, I shared a recipe for Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes with Truffle Oil, and today, I’m sharing a more decadent version ~ Cheesy Cheddar Mashed Cauliflower Potatoes.
I tucked a few pieces of sharp cheddar cheese into the mashed cauliflower potatoes and also sprinkled some cheese on top. It’s a treat worthy of serving for a special occasion or if you just feel like making something a little special for your family.
