Manchego Smashed Potatoes


In honor of Thanksgiving, which is realistically all about food, I am going to be posting the recipes I am making this week. Today’s recipe comes to us courtesy of Rachael Ray. (I’m a fan of hers, in case you haven’t noticed.) This year, instead of my usual whipped potatoes, I will be making Rachael’s Manchego Smashed Potatoes. Yum-o!

4 pounds baby red or baby Yukon gold potatoes, large ones halved
Salt
4 T. butter, cut into small pieces
½ cup milk or cream
12 oz. Manchego cheese, shredded (2 ½ cups)
Freshly ground pepper

In a deep pot, cover the potatoes with water. Cover the pot with a lid and bring to a boil. Uncover, salt the water and cook until tender when pierced with a fork, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Add the butter, milk and cheese and smash. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Since I'm supplying the potatoes on Thursday I'll definitely be adding "manchego" to the shopping list.
