I like mashed potatoes. They are easy to make and they go with everything – meat, baked vegetables, fish, cheeses, salads.
Of course, boiled and mashed potatoes are not very exiting to have, they can be even boring… especially for the little ones.
That is why, when I saw this recipe in this month’s Tesco magazine, I knew I have to try it. It’s a recipe that is super easy to make, doesn’t ask for any special ingredients and it’s extremely delicious. I was surprised that the old potatoes could taste so yummy.
See below one recipe that also helps you utilise some leftovers that nobody wants to have one more time, but you don’t want to throw away. That is usually the case with the boiled and/or mashed potatoes at home – we all love them, but we quickly got fed up with them.
This recipe – Baked mashed potatoes, will use the leftovers and will help you prepare one new and extra scrumptious dish that your loved ones would never guess is made with the ingredients they didn’t want to have earlier. At home, after I prepared this dish, it very quickly disappered. Even I couldn’t believe my eyes.
Try it yourself!
