Jenna. Day 11. Mashed Potato Goodness.

This is the inside of my mixing bowl. Tonight I made the best mashed potatoes known to man. And here is the recipe.

8 med. to large butter gold potatoes, peeled and quartered
6 large carrots, peeled and cut in half

Put veggies into vegetable steamer for 45 mins. If you don't have a steamer, shame on you. I guess you could boil the veggies but I strongly recommend you jump into your car and go buy a vegetable steamer.

Once the veggies are steamed/cooked, place into a mixing bowl. Add:
1 c milk (I used skim.)
4 T (or more if desired) butter
S&P to taste

Mix. Add sour cream or more milk if texture is too tough. I like mine somewhere between potato soup and roasted potatoes.

This is slap-yo-mama, get-out-of-bed-in-the-middle-of-the-night-to-eat-straight-out-of-the-bowl-with-your-fingers good.


  1. Carrots AND potatoes? Steamed NOT boiled? Interesting.....

  2. But soooooo good. I promise you'll love it. (i really don't like cooked carrots all that much, but something about the sweetness it adds to the potatoes. Wow.)
