Cheesy Mashed Potatoes

I made for Thanksgiving and it was kind of lucky because I didnt realize that I was cooking until the day before. I had pulled this recipe for myself for dinner for this past week & it was fitting. I ended up doubling it because I was feeding two men and myself & mashed potatoes tend to go quickly in my family.
