Do you enjoy eating mashed potatoes?

Adding garlic makes for a nice taste too.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

I have been favoring turkey; but, for a beef Manhattan I will use sliced roast beef.

Sometimes, but real mashed potatoes. Sometimes I do garlic MP. Wasabi is interesting too. I don't mind a little stiff or chunky either.

I love them with sausages & gravy despite having them for months when I had a brace. Sometimes put cheese in the mash.
I also like them with eel & liquour, I always have that everytime I am in London though 2 of my favourite eel pie & mash shops are gone now. Roys of Dagenham & Nathans, round the cornr from the old West Ham FC ground

Sorry, but creamy mashed potatoes are not my favorite. Just a little too bland for me regardless of what you put over it.

I prefer smashed. I like a few lumps in the mix and often I will add a second vegetable in the smashed mix. Sweet potatoes and zucchini make an interesting combination. Instead of gravy, I put a little salsa or guacamole on top.

Never heard of this? Neither have I. A few years ago, I was a little hungry and I was looking around my home for something to make and I came up with this. Quick and easy to make. Tasty and definitely different.

Daniele,

I just go to the super and buy the roast beef at the deli.  That is pretty simple and the potatoes and gravy and  bread is easy peasy.

Many super tasty Manhattans are wished for you too!

I will share with you all my secret to making creamy mashed potatoes - and by this I mean the creamy “mouth feel” … not necessarily lumpy or not, that’s easily done with a ricer and/or forcing through a strainer.

But if you’ve ever had mashed potatoes that eat sort of gluey? And you keep adding milk/cream and they’re still pasty? It’s because the starch is seizing up.

Two keys:

1. Always rinse your potatoes before you boil them. That will get a lot of the starch out of the water.

2. While the potatoes are cooking, in a second pan warm your milk or cream (I prefer heavy cream) and butter in a pan.  So that way you ONLY add WARM liquid to your hot potatoes.  Cold liquid will cause the starch to seize and become gluey… and the only thing people can do to prevent is to flood them with way too much liquid until they’re basically running potatoes. 

But if you use warm butter and cream, they’ll come out great every time.

Love,
Allie

(P.S - ok a 3rd little tip - a small splash of EVOO stirred in IMMEDIATELY before serving also is a nice touch in terms of texture)

Love my mashed potatoes.

Fav options are to make with cream and add some wholegrain mustard :) or add in a spoon of Truffle powder.

No silent prayer for the faith-departed

You're gonna hear my voice

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
It's my life

I'm not entirely sure there is a bad way to do any potatoes, let alone mashed. Everything from mashed potatoe sandwiches to mashed potatoe pancakes. I seriously can't think of a time in my life that I have ever gotten up from the table thinking that those potatoes weren't very good. If anything, I get up thinking that there weren't enough potatoes.

If you're not moving forward, you're moving backwards.

Be tougher on yourself than anyone else is, love yourself more than anyone else does, and if there is something you don't want to do at all, best if you do it right now.

Yes!! With extra thick Yorkshire gravy and chorizo sausages. That is like comfort food to the max.

Not sure if I ever have had those types of pork sausages.  I doubt it, or I just did not know I had them.
