Betty demonstrates how to make Cheddar-Topped Whipped Potatoes. The potatoes make a perfect accompaniment for the Fried Chicken Cutlets on our Mother's Day table.

Ingredients

Russet potatoes 6 Medium (washed, peeled, and cut into 3/4
Salt To Taste
Butter stick 1/2 , softened
Cream cheese 4 Ounce , softened
Milk 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
Finely shredded cheddar cheese 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Snipped green onion tops 1 Tablespoon (for garnish, optional)

Directions

Making

In a large pot, cover potatoes with enough water while cooking. 

Bring the water and potato cubes to a boil over high heat. 

Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for about 20 minutes, until potato cubes are very tender, but not mushy. 

Drain potatoes through colander and discard water. 

Add salt, along with butter and cream cheese. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth. 

Add milk and beat until consistency is as desired. Grind fresh black pepper over whipped potatoes and beat one more time. Spoon whipped potatoes out into a buttered casserole dish. Top with shredded cheddar cheese. Bake at 400 degrees (F) for 5 to 10 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown. 

Remove from oven and serve while hot. 

Serving

Granish with snipped green onion tops right before serving, if desired.
