Perfectly Imperfect Mashed Potatoes

I like potatoes. They're tasty. 
And I think they totally count as a vegetable.
I also may sort of be obsessed with trying a bunch of different mashed potato recipes...
They're all different, though-no matter what Michael says.
These potatoes are kind of unique, not super fattening, and easily customizable to your preferences.
Go on, give 'em a try.

  3. Mashed potatoes are always a favorite - especially using red or gold potatoes. They really do taste better than russets in my opinion ;)

    1. See-I've found I prefer russet, or a combo of russet and gold. I do like reds in this recipe though :)

  7. I guess I have been under a rock somewhere. I have never made mashed potatoes with any other type of potato than the big baking potatoes. I heard that the most nutritious part is the skin. Being that the red ones are smaller, they probably offer more nutrients. I will need to mash those little things and try this. The parmesan cheese and chives do make for some great flavor in your dish. Happy Friday!
