Holiday Mashed Potatoes

My mother often served mashed potatoes with our dinner. I mean, who doesn’t love mashed potatoes? But, during the holidays, or even at a special dinner, she would serve what I call holiday mashed potatoes.

This recipe for holiday mashed potatoes is super easy. It tastes great with or without gravy, and can be made a day ahead, saving you time and worry.

They are really easy to make, and work well with any main entrée. Basically all you do is make mashed potatoes, and add in some extra decadent ingredients. Do they work well with gravy? Of course they do, but you don’t really need it.
