Cheesy potatoes with a twist!

Feta cheese mashed potatoes

Does it get much more classic than mashed potatoes? This side goes with just about anything, and most times, steals the show! I love potatoes in just about any form, from chips to fries to twice-baked potatoes, and everything in between. That’s why I was so excited to try out these Feta Cheese Mashed Potatoes.

I’ve had buttery potatoes and cheesy potatoes, but I haven’t had potatoes with butter and feta. Until this recipe, that is. If you’re in the mood for comfort food with a twist or a unique side for your next get-together, this is the recipe for you!

Just look at those creamy potatoes swimming in butter and sprinkled with feta and green onion! While an unexpected combo, feta, butter, parsley, and green onion team up to give you a rich, unique flavor and deliciously smooth texture.

To get started with this decadent side, place potatoes and garlic in a large saucepan on high heat and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to medium-high. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until fork-tender.
