Broccoli & Cheese Mashed Potatoes

This recipe is a great side dish that combines two all-time favorites - broccoli & cheese and mashed potatoes! We really enjoyed the flavors in this dish, and the fun way to enjoy a serving of veggies.

Broccoli & Cheese Mashed Potatoes
·1 pound potatoes, peeled and chopped
·1 medium-sized head of broccoli
·½ cup skim milk
·2 TBS butter
·1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
·1½ tsp onion powder
·1 tsp garlic powder
·Salt and pepper to taste

Place the potatoes in a large pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Once the potatoes are boiling, lower the heat slightly and cook for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, chop the broccoli into ½-inch pieces. When the potatoes are about 5 minutes from being done, add the broccoli and cook for 5 minutes. Drain the potatoes and broccoli and return to the pot. Stir in the remaining ingredients and mash. Adjust seasonings to taste and serve.
