Men Who Cook: Butch Maier, Red Potatoes & Cheese

Red PotatoesWhen I receive Men Who Cook recipes, I file them in a special file and then post in the order I receive them (in case anyone is wondering when their recipe will see the light of day).  A while ago, Todd Daily sent me a great cake recipe, I posted it and then the original document disappeared. Today I went to post his Men Who Cook recipes and, once again, they had disappeared. I told him he’s like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible and his messages self-destruct after 30 seconds in my inbox. Anyway, if you have recipes you’d like send me an email.  I’m sure I won’t lose them.  And next week, Todd, I promise.

Meanwhile, my friend Butch Maier has come to the rescue with a quick and easy side that sounds like it would be good with roast chicken or a grilled steak:

Hi TaMara,

I have a little more time on my hands these days and remembered a recipe for you to try.  I don’t remember were I got it but here it is anyway you will need:

  •  4lbs of baby red skinned potatoes, cut into 4-6 pieces
  • 2 1/2 cups of Manchego cheese shredded.
  • 3/4 milk
  • 4 tbsp of butter, cut into small sections
  • salt & pepper to taste

Boil the potatoes till tender  – takes approx 15 mins.  Drain and add the butter, cheese, milk and mash, season with salt/pepper.  Its is real fast and easy and taste really good
