Have you ever had bland mashed potatoes? Aren’t they just…blech. It’s annoying because you have to add like a pound of butter and approximately 10 million shakes of salt and pepper. It can get exhausting, I tell ya.
These taters have some things you might not just have on hand, but you can always improvise! Mashed potatoes are like trail mix, you can put almost anything in it and it tastes awesome.
Flavorful Mashed Potatoes
5 potatoes, peeled and diced into about 1 inch pieces
about 6 shakes salt
1 T. crushed garlic
2 T. milk
2 heaping Tablespoons onion dip
1 oz. cream cheese
2 t. pepper
- After you have peeled and diced your potatoes, fill up a pot about half way with water. Put your potatoes in the water, add the salt and crushed garlic, and turn the heat up all the way. Once the potatoes are soft and you can stick a fork through them very easily, drain the water.
- Add the onion dip, cream cheese, pepper and milk. Mash with a masher until it is at your desired chunkiness.
- Place lid on top to allow the potatoes to thicken until ready to serve.
