  • 5 pounds red potatoes scrubbed clean
  • 1 cup butter cut into pieces
  • 5 ounces Romano cheese grated
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup milk or half and half more as needed


  • Cut the red potatoes into one inch chunks. Add the potatoes to a large pot and cover with water. Bring the water to a boil, and cook the potatoes until they are easily pierced with a fork, about 25 minutes.
  • Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Add the butter, Romano cheese, garlic, salt, and oregano, and mash the potatoes with a potato masher or handheld mixer. Add milk or half and half as needed to give the potatoes a smooth and creamy texture.
