In this dish, mashed potatoes are combined with sharp cheddar, tangy peppers, and smoky spices for a twist on the beloved Southern flavors of pimento cheese. We’re serving them alongside pork chops topped with an easy salsa made from juicy peach, a summer favorite.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

If you’re grilling, preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Oil the grill grates. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets. Large dice the potatoes. If necessary, peel the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash each clove once to flatten. Crumble the cheese into small pieces. Roughly chop the peppers. Halve and pit the peach. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. In a medium bowl, combine the sliced white bottoms of the scallions and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.

3 Cook & mash the potatoes:

While the broccoli roasts, add the diced potatoes and smashed garlic to the pot of boiling water. Cook 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the crème fraîche, butter, crumbled cheese, chopped peppers, and half the spice blend (you will have extra spice blend). Using a fork or potato masher, mash to your desired consistency. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover to keep warm.
