My sister used to love mashed potatoes…and I mean LOVED them. Every night for dinner growing up she would ask for mashed potatoes with a huge side of gravy. My mom only gave in about once a week, but I was happy because who doesn’t love mashed potatoes? Gravy is great too, but the best mashed potatoes are the ones that can go stark naked and still be amazing all on their own. Kind of like these ones. Okay, exactly like these ones.
These mashed potatoes are a simple and fun way to spruce up your holiday dinner. They take less than 15 minutes to make and add a little flare to the classic mashed potatoes and gravy side dish.
Rosemary & Thyme Mashed Potatoes
- 1 lb small red potatoes, washed
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup sour cream or plain greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme, minced
- salt and pepper to taste
Chop your potatoes into 1″ cubes and place in a medium sauce pan. Fill with water, making sure to completely cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the potatoes are soft.
Drain out the water and mash the potatoes with a potato masher or fork. Add in the butter, milk, sour cream or yogurt, parmesan cheese, herbs and salt and pepper.
Mix well and add in more milk if needed.
