Indulge In {White Cheddar Garlic Mashed Potatoes}

We are one Thursday closer to Thanksgiving and one side closer to cooking up the perfect bird. No Thanksgiving meal is complete without a heaping side of mashed potatoes. But, instead of going with the traditional butter milk mashed, I kicked it up a notch with a bit of roasted garlic and white cheddar cheese. They had just the right amount of flavor to add a bang but still nicely compliment each of your other side dishes. I plan on serving them up with the roasted brussel sprouts I showed you last week and some homemade stuffing. While the turkey is the main item of interest at every Thanksgiving meal, the sides always make it better in my book. Here's the recipe...

:: Ingredients ::
3 lbs. Petite Red Potatoes
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
1 Cup Milk
1 8oz Block White Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1/4 Cup Butter
Salt & Pepper to Taste
Olive Oil

:: Direction ::
1. In a large pot, bring water and potatoes to a boil. Cook until tender.
2. In a small pan, heat olive oil. Once hot, add garlic and saute.
3. Drain the potatoes and place in a large bowl. Add milk, butter, salt and pepper and beat on high until light and fluffy. Add garlic and cheese and mix until well combined.
