#3779 - Deluxe Mashed Potatoes

(by Shirley McNevich)

2lbs. red potatoes (washed, peeled and cut into 2" or so pieces)
3 cups chopped broccoli florets
2 TBSP butter
1/3 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1 tsp. finely chopped garlic
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup Breakstone's sour cream
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

In a large saucepan add potato pieces--cover them with water. Over medium heat bring the water to a boil, then cook the potatoes for 10 minutes. Add the chopped broccoli pieces to the potatoes and continue to cook another 8-10 minutes or until potatoes and broccoli are tender. Remove from heat, then drain and set aside. In a skillet over medium heat add butter--melt. Add chopped red bell peppers--cook/stir for 3 minutes. Add chopped garlic--cook/stir 1-2 minutes longer. Remove from heat. In a large bowl add drained potatoes/broccoli, red bell peppers/garlic, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, salt and pepper--mash with a potato masher. Add milk a little at a time, stirring in between, until mashed potatoes are the consistency you desire.
