From My Cookbook Collection: Herbed Mashed Potatoes
"It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes."
-- Douglas Adams
Okay, I know he's right in theory, but I say a potato a day keeps the gloomies away!
Don't you agree?
Here's a recipe from my Taste of Home CELEBRATIONS cookbook, that tops the list of COMFORT FOODS. Warm, rich and creamy!
HERBED MASHED POTATOES
You will need:
6 1/2 cups cubed, red potatoes (leave jackets on)
2 garlic cloves, peeled and halved
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
2 T. minced, fresh parsley
2 T. minced, fresh oregano
1 T. minced, fresh thyme
1 T. butter
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Place potatoes and garlic in saucepan. Cover with garlic. Bring to a boil over Med.-High heat. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender:drain. Place potatoes and garlic in a large mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mash.
Prepare to be comforted like you never have before.
-Then look up Douglas Adams and tell him HE WAS WRONG!
