Mashed Potato

Mashed Potato is a recipe that everybody needs to have in their repertoire. Whilst it is simple and often only has a few ingredients, it can be adapted to suit the menu. When serving with beef, I add a spoonful of Creamy Horseradish Sauce for a bit of heat. With Ham I put a spoonful of mustard or cheddar cheese for a children’s version.  Also when you have mash potato left over, there is a whole new world of options. Recipes such as Bubble and SqueakPotato Cakes and Potato Croquettes. It is fortunately one of those recipes that is never wasted.
