Mashed potatoes are always made rich & delicious with Carnation, but this version of Creamy Smashed Red Potatoes with Cheese is made extra special with skin-on red potatoes and a touch of cheese for added flavor.


  • 3 lbs. red new potatoes, unpeeled, cut into quarters
  • 1 cup or more NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Lowfat 2% Milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese blend
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste

PLACE potatoes in large saucepan. Cover with water; bring to a boil. Cook over medium-high heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain.

RETURN potatoes to saucepan. Beat with hand-held mixer for a few seconds to break up. Add evaporated milk and butter; beat until milk and butter are mixed in (some lumps will still be present). Add additional evaporated milk, if a smoother consistency is desired. Stir in cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Great smashed potatoes

Great smashed potatoes! I added some shredded cheddar cheese and bacon bits to the potatoes. My family loved it and it has now become one of their favorite dishes!

Extra Cheesy

My family loved these potatoes. I added a 1/2 cup each of shredded cheddar and swiss cheese to give it an extra cheesy taste and just a 1/2tsp of minced garlic for a little extra flavor. It was a hit.
