Servings: 2-3

Cheesy Mashed Potato (Quick and Easy)


  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 2-3 tablespoon margarine/butter
  • ½ cup milk (any liquid or evaporated milk)
  • ½ teaspoon pepper powder
  • salt, to taste. (I used truffle salt)
  • ½ cup grated cheese (any processed cheese)


  1. For Boiling: Boil the potatoes for 30 minutes. For the Air-fryer*: I baked it for 30-40 minutes at 200°C.
  2. Slice and peel the potatoes, and chop in small pieces.
  3. In a pot, add the chopped potatoes, margarine and milk. Mashed it with a fork, just to remove the big chunks.
  4. Then start heating the pot, simmer and mix it well until all the potatoes are thickened and soft. I’m using a non-stick small pot, so I just leave it and cover for 3-5 minutes (I’m not worried, it won’t stick to the bottom anyway).
  5. Once done, here’s an easy trick to make a smooth mashed potato. Transfer the potatoes into a bowl with a strainer on top and pass it through the strainer. Push it down using a spoon. (Don’t forget to scrape the underneath of the strainer for leftover potatoes).
  6. Then add the grated cheese, adjust salt only if needed. Serve it with grated cheese on top. Enjoy!

*Do you like my Air Fryer in the video? Check out where I bought it.. Very affordable and tough. I also want to thank the seller for giving me a good quality air fryer which I have been using now for almost a year.
