While planning out my monthly meal plan the other night, I was not impressed seeing traditional mashed potatoes on the menu four times. In a way it depressed my mind and I got to thinking about different ways to take a traditional mashed potato recipe to the next level. The first thought was to add different seasonings to change the flavor up and then it hit me…Cheese! Cheese is a staple in our house. Not just any regular medium cheddar kind of cheese will do for us. We are huge fans of pepper jack cheese so I knew this would definitely tune the flavor levels up on our run of the mill recipe. Check it out and try this recipe with your family tonight…you won’t regret it!
