Do the Mashed Potato

Spuds, taters, prátas, tubers, potatoes…  You’ve probably had them every which way, from French fries to your basic boiled Irish potatoes. Although it’s easy to get lazy and return to familiar recipes, why not take a chance and try something new? It’s VERY difficult to screw up potatoes, save from burning them in the oven. There’s probably as many ways to prepare as there are varieties (over 5,000!).

Since we had a good amount of spuds laying around along with TONS of garlic and frozen broccoli, Macaroon decided to make a new dish. It turned out to be yummy and easy as hell.
