Cheddar Greek Yogurt Mashed Potatoes

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 40 mins
  • Yield: Serves 4 1x



  • 2 lbs. red potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 to 1.5 cups plain greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded, plus extra for garnish


  1. Cut potatoes into even pieces (I cut them all in quarters and it’s usually good)
  2. Boil potatoes in a pot of salted water for 25-30 minutes, until they are easily pierced with a fork.
  3. Drain potatoes and return them to the hot pot.
  4. Add milk, 1 cup of greek yogurt, butter, salt, pepper, and shredded cheddar cheese to potatoes and mash it all together with a potato masher. If potatoes are too dry, add the remaining 1/2 cup of greek yogurt.
  5. Garnish with extra cheddar cheese and enjoy! You could also bake the potatoes in an oven-safe dish after you add the cheese garnish, to form a nice cheesy crust, but I was too hungry. So I just dug in. Up to you!
