Baked Mashed Potatoes With Cheese


Okay, this is easy. But everyone in my family loves it.  Serve it with a big salad or some steamed broccoli or spinach and it’s a good weeknight dinner.

10 potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

2 (8 ounce) packages, shredded cheddar cheese

1 stick (1/2 cup) margarine

½ cup milk

2 teaspoons salt

Bring potatoes to boil over a high heat; reduce and simmer until soft, about ½ hour.  Remove from heat, drain and add ¾ package cheddar cheese, margarine, milk and salt to the pot.  Mash until almost no lumps remain.  Pour mixture into 9 x 13-inch baking dish.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Sprinkle remaining cheese on top of potatoes. Bake for about 45 minutes.
