Cheesy Red Potato Mash in bowl

This red potato mash is made with the same delicious toppings that are on a baked potato; butter, sour cream, cheddar cheese and chopped green onion.

When each ingredient is good on its own, you know it’s going to be really good when it’s mashed up together.

There’s also a subtle taste of garlic in these potatoes from just a bit of granulated garlic that’s added for good measure.

The potatoes in this recipe have the skin left on which not only gives the dish more texture but also adds color.

Serve this cheesy red potato mash as a side dish any time of the year for a wonderful addition to a meal.
