I’m sure I’ve mentioned this a few times, but I am quite a big fan of mashed potatoes. Like, I have a process to make a quick bowl out of 2-3 potatoes in the microwave. But these sounded fancy so I figured why not?
Two things about the ingredients. It says 2 lbs of potatoes/3 large potatoes. I had a 5lb bag in my pantry, and I ended up using 4 medium potatoes and 1 small one, I think my estimation skills ended up being right. Also, I didn’t know that romano cheese smelled? The taste was basically a very sharp parmesan, but my roommate was like “that cheese smells like vomit.” So, off to a good start. I also spent 10 minutes grating a block of romano because the block was cheaper than the pre-shredded.
The recipe itself is a standard mashed potato recipe, I had them done in about 20-25 minutes. I had freeze dried chives, so I did 1 tbsp instead of 2.
And they were really quite good! But I’m not going to lie, about 2.5 seconds after taking this picture, I added butter and sour cream to them. Because why the hell not.
Lastly, it says this serves 3-4 people. Lol I ate the whole thing by myself.
