Sluttishly Simple: King Henry VIII Mashed Potatoes

*WARNING* These potatoes are hazardous to your health.

I named these potatoes King Henry VIII's as the ingredients are all right up the mighty monarch's ample avenue.

Your cholesterol levels won't thank you; your waistline will become a distant memory; your chin will get a twin ... but your taste buds will love you forever!

You'll need:

  • Four baking potatoes

  • 1/2 cup double cream

  • 2 tablespoons of butter

  • Large pinch of salt (rock or flaked)

  • Sprinkle of oregano

  • Freshly cracked black pepper

  • 1/2 cup parmesan (fine grated)

  • 1/2 cup cheddar (grated)

  • Make it!

  • Peel, quarter and boil the potatoes in salted water until a sharp knife can slide into them and out again without any starchy residue remaining on the blade.

  • Once boiled, drain and return to the pan. Add the cream and mash lightly.

  • Add the butter and mash some more.

  • Add the cheeses, oregano and salt and mash further until smooth. Finish with a decent crack of pepper all over.

  • Enjoy with a steak!
