Take some ordinary mashed potatoes and make them extraordinary with garlic herb cheese.
If there is one dish I need for Thanksgiving, it is mashed potatoes. I cannot even imagine a Thanksgiving without this creamy, buttery deliciousness.I know the turkey gets all the glory but other than providing a base for the gravy, I can pretty much skip it. Now the stuffing, that can provide some serious competition for the top dish on the Thanksgiving table. In the end, it is all about the mashed potatoes for me.
Even my leftover turkey sandwich has to include a smear of mashed potatoes. If you can’t have carb upon carb sandwich at Thanksgiving, when can you have it. It’s my once a year treat. I do have some rules about mashed potatoes, though. No lumps! I repeat no lumps. Do not try to give me smashed potatoes. I want beautifully pureed potatoes. I put mine through a vegetable ricer. Definitely don’t use beaters unless you want starchy mashed potatoes. Put the beaters down and step away from the potatoes.
Another rule, add warm milk. Oh yes, this does make a difference. Take it from a mashed potato aficionado, this will help make your potatoes creamy. If that wasn’t reason enough, it will also help keep your mashed potatoes hot. With these few simple rules, your mashed potatoes will be perfect. They will be the hit of the Thanksgiving meal. The turkey may be a little upset about being upstaged but the mashed potatoes are due for their proper position on the Thanksgiving table.
