Countdown to Thanksgiving Day 6 – Mashed Potatoes

Oh what would Thanksgiving be without mashed potatoes!

Being originally from Idaho I can appreciate a good potato, especially a good mashed potato!

One thing that I have learned is that on Thanksgiving you have to go all out, which means that for the best mashed potatoes you use heavy cream  and butter.  Not half and half or 2% milk, nothing less than:

Full fat = Full flavor = Full Thanksgiving experience

Here is my “Full” mashed potato recipe.  I did give you the option of just using milk, so you can “cheat” on the full-fat-experience if you need to. 

Be careful, because once you go full fat, you may never look back . . .
