My mother made Thanksgiving whipped potatoes by adding butter, milk, sour cream, fresh bacon bits to russet potatoes (Idaho, Maine). She used a hand held mixer to whip. Do you do anything special to taters?
I cook potatoes with carrots and I add roasted garlic and sour cream after. Tastes great and has pretty color.
It’s sweet potatoes for my family. When they are soft I mash them smooth, add sugar, butter, vanilla, an egg, and a little salt. The topping is brown sugar, butter, and pecans.
Yes my Grandma's made that same potato recipe back in the 1950s
It’s sooooo good. That was my whole meal as a kid.
I make a hasselback gratin a la Serious Eats once a year.
Swap them with cauliflower.
Nope. Just wrap them in foil and toss them in the fire.
Blow torch works too.
At the family house in VT at night we’d have an open fire under the star. Grandma played piano in the house, my Brother in law played guitar, my son on the accordion. I player the steel drums on the beer cans. Potatoes in the fire, trout or bass cooked on slate. Then S’mores for the kids! Break out the bourbon around 10. Thanks for the potato memory.
I do almost the same thing, but add some part cheese!
I make Lefse😄
look it up
I did. Simple enough. Flat potato pancake.
It sounds like a lot of work for potatoes. They do sound tasty though!
Not really. It’s mashed potatoes! A little sour cream and Bacon bits is not much work.
My attention all goes to my sweet potatoes. I make a tiny bit of mashed for my bil since he won’t eat my candied sweets.
My husband makes excellent mashed potatoes. Sometimes he mashes them with garlic and grated Parmesan cheese.
Saw one to on the Food network. With butter, milk, sour cream whipped heavy cream and parm cheese.
I add some cream cheese.
That good. Smooth the taste.
I’m in the process of making smashed potatoes ala Foodwishes.com.
Nice. I try it soon. I saw something similar.
I mic potatoes, quarter, oil, salt and grill like steak fries. Nice crispy edges and a creamy center. I have the luxury of a full blown gas grill in the kitchen.
Thanks for the recipe. Might do it for Tday.
