Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

by Laura

These are the parmesan mashed potatoes that I served alongside the pork tenderloin recipe I shared with you yesterday. They were a great compliment to the meat, but it will work with just about any meat.

Dairy is what makes mashed potatoes amazingly creamy. And this one uses 5 different types to make them so tasty and creamy. I do use light products on those to help reduce the calories.

The parmesan cheese is what gives it that nice little bite of flavor. This is a great side dish to keep in your files.
