Re: Mashed potaoes

Another hit is mixing a couple of spoons of home made Basil Pesto into your mash...

That goes soooo well with chicken breast stuffed with strips of red pepper and wrapped in crispy pancetta!

Drizzle with realy good quality extra virgin...

And yet another goodie is mixing finely chopped spring onion and grated cheese... I add realy finely chopped red chilli right at the end too!

and mixing Melting chunks of blue cheese and finely chopped crispy, smoked, steaky bacon into the mash...

God! just about anything goes well in mash!!!!

Still not keen on the idea of powdered milk though, sorry mate!

Re: Mashed potaoes

flavoured mash is great but if you waqnt it plain i think it depends what its for.

i like a thick, robust mash with sausages (just add butter and seasoning) and a lighter, looser mash with fish (butter, milk or cream and ALWAYS white pepper, never black).

but thats just my preference.

Re: Mashed potaoes

Dave Ijust made pesto!

Im going to try your mash asap.

Im the only one here who would eat the chicken stuffed with peppers, but Im sure the mash will be great with panfried plain chicken.

Re: Mashed potaoes

Dave, I am drooling over the horsradish and pesto suggestions.  Not sure whether the OH would give it a go though .. fussy one.

Re: Mashed potaoes

Give it a go! just use a couple of spuds and make a small batch for yourself mate... or make a normal sized batch, then freeze what you dont use ready for a quick meal another day. Mash freezes well!!!

OR...

Make a batch, serve the OHs plain, then add the horseradish or pesto to the mash in the pan, mix it in well then serve your portion... everyones a winner!!!

The horseradish mash is a brilliant potato to pair with med-rare roast beef... the horseradish gives the mash a real fiery hit!

Drizzle the whole thing with a lovely home made red wine gravy and the resting juices from the beef....

How did you get on with the pesto-mash Frizz? it does go well with plain pan fried chicken pieces too... I have also roasted cherry tomatoes, still on the vine simply sprinkled with rock salt and cracked black pepper and drizzled with olive oil... serve those next to the basil mash and the chicken pieces... brilliant flavours thet go SOOOooo well together.

Happy mashing folks!

Re: Mashed potaoes

Dried milk doesn't dissolve good in mashed potatoes. It's a bit chalky tasting. I use an electric hand mixer to get an nice texture with some garlic and cheddar cheese.  smile
