Grilled Mashed Potatoes Recipe


Grilled Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes with grilled potatoes. Delish!

I’d like to introduce you all to the Klondike Rose potato.

I’m sure you are familiar with Russet potatoes, baby red potatoes…what they look like, how to cook with them. But don’t pass these guys up in the produce department. I love that you don’t have to peel them because their skin is really thin (and also gives great texture to mashed potatoes, like these here!) Once cooked, they are creamy, smooth and have a buttery texture. As you’ll see below, they have a creamy golden center with a rose colored skin. They are great for pretty much every cooking type (roasting, mashing, baking, and grilling)…so that’s why I decided to grill and mash them :)

Here’s how it goes…

Mash with your favorite mix-ins.

We all LOVED loved l.o.v.e.d. these potatoes. The smokiness from the grill and the seasoning salt made for a spectacular mashed potato side dish!

Also…there is a coupon available right now on the Klondike website…be sure and print it before you head out to get your sack of potatoes! Yay for savings!
