Mashed potatoes – they are such a simple yet vital part of the holiday meal. I cannot imagine a turkey dinner without them. Okay, if you’re low-carb-ing it then you’ll have to substitute something like faux mashed potatoes made from cauliflower, but honestly? Mashed potatoes are ever so much better as long as you don’t resort to instant. Gag.
Here is how I make them:
Homemade Mashed Potatoes
- russet potatoes
- milk, cream, 1/2 and 1/2 or some combination thereof
- lots of real butter (you know how I feel about that margarine crap)
- salt and pepper – maybe a little garlic powder and/or Creole seasoning
