In my house, mashed potatoes are a mandatory component of our Thanksgiving dinner. In fact, every Thanksgiving, its Bus Boy, my oldest, who accompanies me to the kitchen in the early morning and begins peeling the potatoes while I get the turkey ready to go into the oven. I generally use the same mashed potato recipe over and over each year, but this year, I decided to see what other mashed potato recipes are out there.
We have collected several mashed potato recipes for your consideration, some of them make use of more exotic ingredients, too. If you want to try something new, I’m sure you’ll find the perfect recipe. We even have recipes for vegan mashed potatoes and keto mashed potatoes as well as recipes that will teach you how to make mashed potatoes in the instant pot and the crock pot if you’re running out of room on the stove.
