White Cheddar Mashed Potatoes

BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse Copycat Recipe

2 lbs russet potatoes
2 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
1 1/4 cups heavy cream, warmed
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper

Wash potatoes, peel and quarter and place in a large pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Drain potatoes and transfer to a large serving bowl.

Immediately add cheese, butter, 3/4 cup of the cream, salt and pepper. Blend thoroughly with the whip attachment of an electric mixer or potato masher. Mash throughly slowing adding the remaining cream. Be careful you don't add too much cream or you will end up with soupy potatoes. Depending on your potatoes you may not use all the cream.
