  • Cook potatoes in boiling water in large saucepan 15 to 20 min. or until tender; drain.
  • Mash potatoes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Spoon into microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 5 to 7 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.


Do not mash the potatoes in a nonstick pan as this could damage the nonstick surface. Transfer potatoes to a large bowl, then mash potatoes as directed.


If you are short on time, instead of shredding the cheese, use 1/2 cup Cracker Barrel Shredded Old Cheddar Cheese.

    Not bad. A change from the usual mashed potatoes but I wasn't a huge fan of the Miracle Whip tang. My son and husband seemed to like it I don't know if I'd make it again.

    The only way my husband will eat mashed potatoes is if I make it like in this recipe!
