“My two young boys would only eat boxed mashed potatoes, until I came up with this recipe. Little do they (and my finicky husband) know they are also eating their archenemy, onions!! This dish is different because you boil the seasoning with the potatoes instead of adding them later, thus a milder flavor. Serve piping hot with butter or homemade gravy although they don't need either. Enjoy!!!”

Directions

  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot, and fill with enough water to cover by 1 inch. Add the onion, garlic, basil, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper, and bring to a boil. Cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Drain the contents of the pot in a colander, then transfer to a large bowl. Add the sour cream, butter, milk and food coloring, and beat with an electric mixer until light. Adjust milk if needed. Do not beat too long, or the potatoes will become stiff and pasty. Taste and adjust salt and pepper before serving.

Great mashed potatoes. Very light and creamy. I used thyme instead of basil because it went better with the rest of our dinner... And the 10-star reason I chose this recipe - (based on an actual conversation) -- DH: 'Hey, why are these potatoes yellow?" - ME: 'I don't know.' - DH: 'Did you dye them yellow?' - ME: 'Yes.' - DH: 'Why did you *do* that?’ - ME: 'I didn't *want* to do it, KAYLIVESHERE *told* me to...' - DH: ‘Huh? Who's KAYLIVESHERE?' - ME: 'I don't know.’ - DH: ‘*Why* did she tell you to dye the potatoes yellow??' - ME (smiling): I don't know. She didn't say.' --- Awesome. Thanks for the recipe!

These were AWESOME! They were the hit of my Thanksgiving dinner! I made them just the way your suppose to minus the food coloring, but near then end when they were done I about a half cup of cheese, and about a half a jar of Real bacon bits, and they were to die for! I only like instant, i HATE real mashed potatoes but I did them real this time for Thanksgiving, and I'll never go back to instant now because of this recipe!!
