Preparing a main dish for the guests is an easy task, as one has numerous options available for this purpose. However, the real confusion arises when there is a need for making something as a side dish. Other than looking for an easy recipe, one also prefers a dish, which does not take much time in preparation. In this regard, there is nothing better than mashed potatoes, cooked with cheese.
Yukon gold potatoes: 3 pounds (about 9)
Low-sodium chicken broth: 1 cup
Unsalted butter: 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick)
Water (for boiling)
Pepper (as needed)
Salt (as needed)
Kraft Velveeta cheese: 1 lb
Take a medium sized pan and fill it half with water. Add some salt to it and boil it on medium heat so that the salt gets dissolved properly.
Wash the potatoes properly before peeling them. Although their skin has yet to be removed, you still need to make sure that they are perfectly clean.
Using a peeler, remove the skin of the potatoes and wash them once more.
With the help of a sharp knife, cut the potatoes in small chunks. Make sure that the pieces are not too small.
Put the potato chunks into boiling water and add some more cold water to the pan. Allow the water to boil once again and then lower the flame.
Leave the potatoes in the pan for 20 minutes, so that they become tender. Make sure that the flame is at its lowest point.
Once the potatoes get tender, remove the pan from the stove and drain all the water. Let the potatoes cool for a few minutes.
Using a fork, you can mash the potatoes, so that they form a paste like shape. You can add some seasonings at this point and mix them properly.
Finally, add the Velveeta cheese to the mashed potatoes and serve them to your guests.
