Mashed Parmesan Potatoes

Mashed Parmesan Potatoes - so creamy and filled with half & half, butter, sour cream, and Parmesan cheese making them so flavorful and delicious!

Mashed Potatoes have been one of my favorite dishes since I was little. I think I’m just a potato lover, in general, but there’s something about creamy, buttery potatoes that are just so irresistible! Today’s recipe is no different. These Mashed Parmesan Potatoes have already been declared a new favorite. We made them this summer and realized that they weren’t only simple, but they were delicious. Different than typical mashed potatoes, we used red potatoes to make these and added a bit more flavor.

We loved this recipe for so many reasons, but mostly because it felt like were getting the delicious restaurant-style potatoes that are so addicting. The reason why? The recipe calls for half & half, butter, sour cream AND Parmesan cheese. You really can’t make bad potatoes when all of that is included. 😉
