Did you know there was a National Mashed Potato Day (October 18th)? Me either until yesterday! Mashed potatoes are a huge favorite in our house and a total comfort food for me. Now that the weather is cooling down, I find myself craving them more and more.  Even better, they are super simple to make and the whole family likes them so it makes dinner time that much easier.

One of my favorite ways to make them is this simple and quick recipe for cheddar and sour cream mashed potatoes!

Drooling yet?

It’s super savory and completely delicious. In less than 15 minutes you can have this prepared and ready to eat so it’s perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. I love serving it with roasted chicken or pork chops.
