Homemade Mashed Potatoes
A Stitch In Time Saves Nine. A Penny Saved Is A Penny Earned. Waste Not, Want Not.
Probably one of the most versatile, frugal and efficacious dishes is the mashed potato. Gracing our Thanksgiving dinner table each year, mashed potatoes are wildly overlooked for the remaining 364 days of the year.
At just pennies per serving, Homemade Mashed Potatoes are not only inexpensive, they’re one of the most versatile side dishes. By adding a few cloves of fresh garlic during boiling and then mashing with the potato, the gourmet Garlic Mashed Potatoes are created. By substituting milk with buttermilk, you have Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes. And, Herb Mashed Potatoes can be made by adding some fresh or dried herbs like rosemary, thyme and parsley.
Five Recipes To Make with Leftover Mashed Potatoes
Homemade mashed potatoes can be cooked in bulk to freeze for future use, or stored for use in other recipes- or, like I call “Reincarnate The Leftover”. Here are some of my favorite recipes using leftover mashed potatoes.
A Stitch In Time
Homemade mashed potatoes freeze and reheat well, so I like making extra and storing for a busy day’s side dish. I recommend using glass storage containers like Rubbermaid’s Glass Food Storage or Ziploc’s Versaglass that go from the freezer and into the oven or microwave to reheat.
