I love mashed potatoes! My special recipe is the following: I usually half-mix the potatoes so that there remain some bits and pieces, I add some fresh steamed corn, some finely shredded carrots, some fresh minced scallions, parsley, basil, and oregano, some pepper, and I finish with some creamy "bechamel" (without added butter, only flour, fat free milk, and a dash of vanilla extract, thickened on the stove top). I just love it!

Boil five medium potatoes and one medium rutabaga in chicken broth. Mash with cut up fresh rosemary, lots of salted butter and chicken broth. Yum yum

My mashed potatoes are made with purple potatoes, boiled with skin still on, about 20 in a pot. Then when they are done I drain the water, add 2 tablespoons of ghee, full fat plain yogurt, about a quarter cup! Add organic garlic salt (himalayan) and pepper to taste, and you have a simple but new twist on mashed potatoes!

When mashing the potatoes, I always warm the milk, cream and butter before adding to potatoes. This makes for a fluffier texture and enhances the taste.

Mash potatoes once baked in warm water, mix it with Avacado oil, roasted garlic and Tahini with a two tsp of sea salt. Add minced green chilli (jalepino) and serve hot. The aroma of avacado and tahini generates a finest delicacy and is a heart-healthy side dish.

I mix it with parsnips and garlic. They add a bit of zip and make it healthier. Good stuff.

I leave the skins in the mashed potatoes for color, fiber and taste! For a great taste and less fat, I use reduced fat cream cheese with some milk with some butter. The mash has a smoothness without the tons of butter. Yukon Gold potatoes are the best to use. Salt and pepper to taste, plus I snip fresh parsley into it too.

Smashed/ mashed potatoes in our house involves lots of butter and milk and garlic and always some type of chesse. The favorite is feta crumbles at the last minute. SOOOO good and unexpected.

Try a little high quality white truffle oil (you can purchase at Whole Foods), using Macaparone with the butter add flavor depth, too, not in competition with the truffle oil.

I use Soy Milk and Earth Balance spread to make them vegan! Salt and pepper and no one can tell the difference!

I make my mashed potatoes by adding a few yellow potatoes, diced, skins left on, two to three large white potatoes, quartered, leaving the skins on, half a head of cauliflower and one turnip, peeled and diced, I boil them for about 30 to 40 mins., mash with a potato masher, add a large heaping spoon of yogurt, half a stick of butter, a little salt, a pinch or two of garlic powder, and some milk. I divide them up into two servings, one to serve as is, the other I add some chopped scallions, some grated cheddar and some crumbled bacon on the top.

I love sweet potatoes so when I make mashed potatoes, I always use sweet potatoes. Bake or steam the sweet potatoes. I have two versions of it: savory and sweet. For savory, I like to add garlic, milk and sour cream. For sweet, add maple syrup, milk, cinnamon and a pinch of salt.
