Continuing with my Thanksgiving 101 series … No Thanksgiving is complete without Mashed Potatoes.
When I think comfort food, I think Mashed Potatoes – especially this time of year as it’s getting cold. It’s the perfect side to roasts and stews. I often just quickly mash the potatoes and add cream, butter, garlic and chives. Other times, especially at the holidays, I serve Snowy Mashed Potatoes.
You know, one of the main issues at a holiday meal is how to get everything hot and ready to eat at the same time. I like serving Snowy Mashed Potatoes at holiday meals because it can be put together the day before and just heated up while your main dish is resting. What’s the difference from regular mashed potatoes you ask? This recipe is served as a ‘casserole’ and uses cream cheese and sour cream to ‘cream’ up the dish – thick and creamy and just a little more special. Mmmmm
