Mashed Potatoes

Mash potatoes….

The ultimate comfort food. The creamy butter potato goodness that seems to cause all stress to dissipate.

Also, a diabetics worse nightmare. Carbs, starch, butter, fat, etc.

That is all.

Mashed Potatoes

2 pounds potatoes, peeled
1 cup milk
3 oz cream cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons butter

Directions

Chop potatoes into cubes and put in a pot of boiling water.

Once potatoes are fork tender, drain water and take masher to the potatoes.

Mash the potatoes. Mash as much or as little as you want. Picture your ex, or someone you thoroughly dislike as you mash if you want no lumps. Grease that elbow and mash. There’s a reason way its comfort food, its from mashing your anger away leaving you cool calm and collected.

Add milk, cream cheese, salt, pepper, and butter to your perfectly mashed potatoes.

Stir your mashed potatoes until everything is melted and combined nicely.

No flakes or powdered potatoes here obviously. Sure, its cheaper and faster to make. But seriously, its bland.

This recipe is what I consider a base recipe. You can add cheese, bacon, chives, garlic, parmesan, chicken, beef, ham, spinach, and what have you. It would just as great with brown gravy as it would white.

And the best part! No Mayo!!!!!
