American Thanksgiving is coming up and so is Christmas, I figured I should post my basic Delicious Mashed Potato recipe.
This recipe serves 8 or 4 or 6 potato loving people or teenagers :)
I remember growing up and our holidays at home. My dad would sit at the kitchen table and would peel & cut up all the potatoes, sweet potatoes and turnip for my mom. He would then cut everything up into perfectly sized, equal pieces and get them all ready for the pot.
Me, I don't peel my potatoes, I served them with the skin on, partly because it's easier, partly because I think it's more nutritious
I like to use a hand masher but you could use a hand mixer for a
creamier texture. I like mine kinda lumpy.

I have at times added to this recipe, 1 cup of sour cream and 1.2 brick of cream cheese - YUMMY!!
Add some fresh minced garlic to taste - super yummy!
The perfect side dish for my delicious Easy Meatloaf.
