Everyone loves mashed potatoes. But no offense Rachel Ray … I really do love your show and have learned alot, but sometimes I don’t even have 30 minutes. When it is a last minute change of plans and no time to do anything, I rely on these potatoes to go with a store bought roasted chicken or even some BBQ Ribs. I would rather make them from scratch, but sometimes that just doesn’t happen. These are so quick and so good, I even use these on regular nights rather than boiling them.
Honestly they are so versatile. This is the base recipe. However, I have added sour cream, bacon, ham, different cheeses, onions, scallions, herbs, butter, cream and just milk. Feel free to add whatever you enjoy in your potatoes.
NOTE: If you add any other raw vegetables such as peppers, mushrooms, sausage, etc. you would want those pre cooked. It is a great way to use up leftovers.
After adding your additional ingredients, cook another minute to heat and serve.
