Mashed Potatoes

 

Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are heaven. They are creamy and delicious. You can add just a few ingredients and keep them simple or fancy them up. My boys like them indented in the middle with a pool of gravy👌. This past summer my friend Lisa introduced me to truffle salt. I had truffle fries and some other yummy dishes with truffle oil before. But she encouraged me to buy truffle salt. I did! Potatoes is one of those things that tastes delicious with truffle salt. Mashed potatoes seasoned with truffle salt are amazing!
