Parmesan Mashed Potatoes
Afnan, Season 5
8 down…91 to go!
This post is gonna be short and sweet.
This was a simple side dish we’ve all had before–mashed potatoes. However, these were definitely better than your average instant boxed mashed potatoes. They were creamy, cheesy, and made from scratch.
I ended up serving them alongside the Beef Wellington, which was also created by Afnan. So it was a complete Afnan-inspired meal!
What did I do differently?
- I added a dash of cayenne pepper when I seasoned it with the called for salt and pepper. I also always go pretty heavy-handed with the pepper in all things. It makes everything so much better, in my opinion.
- I added even more Parmesan than called for. No regrets.
- I garnished with parsley. I love fresh herbs on everything!
All my love,
Dani, a big tid
P.S. Are you a die-hard boxed mash fan or do you strictly make them from scratch? I’m not gonna lie, I like them all. Even frozen mashed cauliflower. I feel like there’s no wrong way to do it. And as my grammy says all the time, “I never met a potato I didn’t like.”
This Is Gonna Be Fun.
