Yes, Thanksgiving dinner is a time to count our blessings, but everyone knows the best part about this is the holiday food

3    pounds   russet, Yukon gold or red potatoes, peeled if desired and cut into 2-inch pieces
3    cups   fresh or frozen broccoli florets
1/4   cup   butter
1/2 - 3/4   cup   milk, whipping cream, half-and-half or light cream
1 1/2   cups   shredded cheddar cheese
1    teaspoon   salt
1/2   teaspoon   ground black pepper
    Melted butter (optional)
In a 4- to 5-quart Dutch oven, cook potatoes, covered, in enough lightly salted boiling water to cover for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. When the potatoes are nearly cooked (about 5 minutes remaining), add broccoli florets to the Dutch oven. Drain. Return the hot, drained potatoes to the hot Dutch oven. Add the 1/4 cup butter. Let stand, uncovered, for 2 to 3 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat the milk over low heat until hot but not boiling.
Mash potatoes with a potato masher or beat with an electric mixer on low speed just until light and fluffy. Stir in the warm milk, cheddar cheese, salt and pepper. Gradually stir in additional milk to make potatoes desired creaminess. If desired, serve with additional butter.
