Mashed Potatoes Supreme



My husband and I were playing around with new ideas for Thanksgiving mashed potatoes, we love all kinds of mashed potatoes but at the same time we really wanted to try something different. I think we really hit the spot with this combo and they were real winners at the Dunkin table. If you are looking to change up your plain old mashed potatoes for Christmas I really think you should consider giving these a try. My husband really does not like sweet taters and I truly love them so we compromised on mixing them in with our regular mashed taters and WOW did they really turn out fantastic.


8 Large - Red Potatoes (cubed)
1 Large - Sweet Potato (peeled & cubed)
1 - Stick of Unsalted Butter
½ C. - Half & Half
1 Tbs. - Garlic Powder
½ Tbs. - Nutmeg
Salt & Pepper

Boil the potatoes until fork tender, drain and return to the hot pot. Add in the butter along with the half & half and use a potato masher to get the desired consistency you would like. Stir in the spices then salt & pepper to taste.

What a great idea! I have to try this just to see what it tastes like with the two types of potatoes. Thanks!

I never get tired of mashed potatoes and love the idea of adding some sweet potato along with the russets. Sounds very tasty.

Marybeth, this sounds like a great 'meeting of the minds' by combining two distinct flavors into one unique side dish. I love the compromise and I definitely will give this union a try. Get idea & thanks...

This is a terrific compromise Mary Beth. My husband does not like sweet potatoes, but maybe I could sneak one in on him with this.
