I Like To Experiment And Try New Recipes For Mashed Potatoes Every Thanksgiving


I like to experiment and try new recipes for Thanksgiving, especially with mashed potatoes and I prefer to cook with fresh rather than frozen. Any ideas I can try?


That’s a great attitude, but family favorites served year after year maybe the best way to go during the traditional holiday get together. Traditional never goes out of style. Here are a couple of Idaho mashed potato recipes to rely on:

Traditional Mashed Idaho® Potatoes
Traditional Mashed Idaho® Potatoes

Idaho® Potatoes with Garlic
Idaho® Potatoes with Garlic

Traditional "Slow Cooker" Mashed Idaho® Potatoes

However, experimentation is fun and can give your dinner guests something to rave about for Thanksgiving. So the recipes below are some show stopping spuds.
