3/4 oz / 15 grams of butter.

Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water until tender. Steam or boil the cauliflower and broccoli until just tender.
Mash the potatoes with milk, butter and seasoning and then add the cooked cauliflower, broccoli and 3/4 of the cheese.
Mash it all together, put into an ovenproof dish, and top with remaining cheese.

For Meat eaters. Crispy back bacon goes really well with it.
