Cheesy Red Potato Mash

Bring a meal to life with this side dish.

Cheesy Red Potato Mash

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.

  1. Oh, I do have a half of a white onion in my fridge… Not sure if I should use that or the sweet onions, or something else?

    • Hi Evan, I would use the sweet onions and dice them so they’re in smaller pieces than the green onions shown in the pictures. And actually, that might taste really good to get just a bit of delicious crunch from the onion with each bite. Thank you so much for stopping by.

  2. Hi there!

    This looks so delicious, but I don’t have any green onions on hand. All I have are sweet onions… Do you think I could use those instead?

    Thanks! 🙂

  3. Oh my lanta. Your pictures make me want to grab a bite! Lol this looks awesome.
