I'm starting a movement - #pimpyourmash !!! Maybe it's already a movement and I'm behind the times, who knows...I'm definitely no social media expert.
We have mashed potato with LOTS of meals in our house, so I like to get creative with some additions - so I give you my Mustard Mashed Potatoes. Rich, creamy, fluffy mash swirled with a ribbon of decadent garlic & mustard butter. Mmmmmmmm.......................
You can easily adjust the amount of mustard butter down (or up!) if you like, as it's made separately to the mash then just folded/swirled in at the end. I also added some parmesan cheese, why? - because I can! It really adds a cheesy savoury note, without glumping up the mash. My computer just told me glumping is not a word - but I think you get my point!
Go on - #pimpyourmash !!!
