Ingredients

  • 3

    pounds baking potatoes (about 4 large), peeled and quartered

  • 1/2

    stick butter

  • 3/4

    cup sliced scallions (2 to 3)

  • 1

    tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1

    tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried chives

  • 1

    tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried dill weed

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/2

    teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 1/2

    cups (6 ounces) shredded mild Cheddar cheese (see Note)

  • 1/2

    cup milk

Directions

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook potatoes 20 to 25 minutes, or until tender; drain. Place butter and scallions in pot and cook over medium heat 1 minute. Reduce heat to low and stir in basil, chives, dill, salt, and pepper. Return drained potatoes to pot; add cheese and milk. Remove from heat and mash with a potato masher or beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Note If you like your potatoes a little less cheesy, don't be afraid to cut the amount of cheese to 1 cup. They'll still be packed with flavor.
