In large saucepan, cook potatoes in boiling salted water 20 minutes or until tender; drain. Mash potatoes; add milk and butter.

Stir in Canadian Cheddar cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.


Mashed potatoes should be free of lumps and a potato masher will do the job quickly and easily. If you like creamy smooth potatoes, whip them with a hand or electric beater, but do not use a blender or food processor or the potatoes will turn to glue.

* Or you can use crumbled Canadian Blue or chopped Brie cheese.
