Kinda makes you wanna lick the screen doesn’t it???
Holy melted butter…and cracked pepper. This is the kind of recipe that makes me fall in love with mashed potatoes all over again. I seem to fall in love year after year…about this time…just before Thanksgiving!
These creamy mashed potatoes will make everyone at your table drool. Seriously, they will.
PRO TIP: When making a large batch of mashed potatoes for the upcoming holidays, use your stand mixer to do all the heavy lifting (errr, mashing!) for you. They will turn out perfectly smooth (with just enough potato-chunk texture!)
These will definitely be on my Thanksgiving dinner table…and they should be on yours too!
