St. Patrick’s Day Potatoes

Every kitchen needs a go-to mashed potato for those nights when you don’t want to spend 30-40 minutes on a side dish.

Simply peel (or not) potatoes, throw them in a pot of boiling water, and mash, when finished, …how easy is that!! You can use red potatoes, Yukon gold potatoes, russet potatoes, white potatoes, purple potatoes, or even Kennebec potatoes for a great tasting mashed potato.

The addition of goat’s cheese, chives, and subtle hints of garlic throughout these mashed potatoes will keep your family and friends talking. Taking them from “These mashed potatoes are OK” –to- “Where have these mashed potatoes been all my life?”
