Do you like mashed potatoes? Think about it… are creamed potatoes, drenched in gravy good? I mean, sure its good. But is it great? Honestly, I don’t think so. I think its old. Boring. We need something with a little more taste and pizazz!
And, have you ever made mashed potatoes? I’m not talking about from a box. That doesn’t count. But truly. Peeled, boiled, mashed or pureed. It is a process! For real. So, let’s simplify it too. I love making recipes that taste amazing and are super easy to piece together. We need more time enjoying our guests- friends, and family- rather than be all up in the kitchen for hours.
Confession, I’ve made this dish twice within the past week. Yes, twice! Thats a lot of potato. But, hey, its good! Plus, I had to make sure it was perfect to reveal. This thanksgiving, out with the old, in with the new. Try this delicious potato recipe, free from dairy, and weird preservatives. Embrace taste, I dare ya.
