If there ever was a comfort food in my mind it is mashed potatoes. I love them. And not the instant come in a box kind either.
But real red potatoes with the skin left on, boiled with garlic, and mashed with lots of butter. And at the very least half and half instead of milk.
I realize that mashed potatoes aren’t something that one normally feels a need to follow a recipe to make but I do have to say that there are some secret ingredients that can make good potatoes (because really are there any bad mashed potatoes?) and turn them into great potatoes.
If I have any left overs the girls like to take them for lunch the next day. I’ll add in bacon bits, sour cream, and green onion just like you would for a baked potato.
