Extra Ingredient - Mouth-Watering Mashed Potatoes 
1st-Jan-2004 06:21 pm
Yet another first post, amoung the new people of the community. ~waves~ 

I like to experiment in cooking - usually adding a little more to something - and one of my favourite things to eat/experiment with is potatoes in all forms.

I know this sounds quite simplistic, but substituting sour cream instead of milk in mashed potatoes tastes so much better - and more butter never hurts. I make my mashed potatoes in the way I would fix my baked potato, and get a lot of compliments for that method. I even add the bacon bits and cheddar cheese sometimes.

I have no idea if this is helpful, but I hope it peaks someone's interest at the very least :)

I love using sour cream in mashed potatoes! So good. Or using red potatoes and leaving the skins on.

Also buttermilk is fabulous!

now I want mashed potatoes.

One of my favorite ways to do mashed potatoes is to beat them with cream cheese in addition to the milk and butter that are generally used. I add a handful of diced scallions, spoon them into a casserole dish, and bake them for 15-20 minutes at 350*. They get a little crispy on top, and stay hot for the duration of a meal. I haven't used sour cream, but I bet it is delicious. :)

Yum! I'd love to try that!

yes cream cheese! xD

uh i like strong cheese, so i normally pour in tons of grated parmesan as i mash them cos the heat from the potatoes melts everything. MMMMM.

and ok this may sound weird but i like to nutmeg in my mash, goes with the milkiness :P
