Mashed Potatoes

These homemade mashed potatoes are perfectly creamy, flavorful, and great added to any meal! Perfect paired with homemade gravy.

A couple days ago I promised you I would be sharing a delicious mashed potatoes recipe with you and I finally have it for you. These mashed potatoes are perfect for you to make for Thanksgiving, or just as a side dish to your regular dinner.

Mashed Potatoes - delicious and perfect mashed potatoes that will be a great side to your Thanksgiving feast or any meal!

The recipe makes a lot, but then again I’m also used to cooking for two. But, you do use 2 and 1/2 pounds of potatoes, so a good amount – but if you’re cooking Thanksgiving dinner for a lot of people then you might need to even double or triple this recipe still, but mostly because these potatoes are so good and everyone will be coming back for seconds.

  1. It must have been the parmesan that made these over the top delicious! I’ll have to add it to my recipe, which is almost exactly the same except for that addition. :)

  2. Wow! These sound dangerous! But if I’m going to die, I hope I will have eaten these potatoes just before!
