I recently bought some purple potatoes. Purple mashed potatoes taste just like there cream colored relative but its fun to eat purple food. Mashed sweet potatoes with chipotle peppers & cumin are yummy & go great with mexican or caribbean dishes. Any kinda cheese & chives mixed in works for me.

Usually mashed w/ butter, sour cream, bacon bits, cheese, and seasoned w/ garlic powder. So good you don't even need gravy.......

Default Here's a couple...

Three Cheese Potatoes

Make basic mashed potatoes. If in a hurry, you can buy the pre-made or frozen, just make sure they're the real thing. Add salt, pepper, muenster cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, heavy cream, & butter.

I just picked up the following recipe and ingredients at Publix grocery today and I plan to try it Monday night:

Blarney Cakes

8 ounces fresh-cut kale
2 tablespoons water
1 cup panko
7 ounces deli medium-sharp, white cheese
1 (24-ounce) package refrigerated potatoes
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup canola oil

1. Place kale leaves and water together in microwave-safe bowl; cover and nuke on High for 5-7 minutes

2. Place panko on plate. Grate cheese; place in large bowl. Add potatoes and garlic. Drain kale; stir into potatoes and mix well.

3. Preheat large saute pan on medium-high for 2-3 minutes. Form four patties (2 tablespoons each) and dip into panko (coating on both sides).
4. Place oil in pan & swirl to coat. Add patties; cook 3-4 minutes on each side. Repeat. Drain cooked patties on paper; cover to keep warm.

This is as simple as it gets but tastes good! With leftover mashed potatoes make up individual servings, heat up in the microwave until just about hot enough, then add cheese on top and heat until melted.

Mashed potatoes with beef gravy only is the way to go.

I usually make mine with cauliflower, butter, half and half, garlic, salt and pepper. Sprinkle with paprika. No potatoes.

roast a whole head of garlic. Scoop the roasted garlic out of the casings and into the potatoes - add butter, sour cream, and milk to taste and to consistency preference. I won't detail all the spices I use as this is one of my personal secrets, but I will mention celery salt.

A Bay leaf or two in the boiling water also adds another layer of flavor, followed by mashing with butter, salt & pepper, warmed milk, and a touich of freshly grated Nutmeg
