My mashed potatoes today are absolutely sinful. Packed with my favorite potato topping flavors, it’s hard to resist them! Let’s have a mashed potato night shall we?!

How To Make Cheesy Mashed Potatoes

  1. Boil cubed potatoes for 10-15 minutes or until fork tender. Drain and place into the bowl of a stand mixer.
  2. Add your butter, milk, garlic salt, pepper, Ranch seasoning and 1/2 cup of shredded cheese. Mix until just combined. Transfer potatoes to a large dutch oven or pot over medium heat. Top with remaining shredded cheese and close lid to melt cheese for 3-5 minutes. Remove lid and serve with crumbled bacon on top.

Rinse and cube your potatoes into 1 inch cubes.
