Creamy Mashed Potatoes - for 2

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Steph KP

Tasty, no-fail recipe. My husband loves these and so do I! We love them so much that no restaurant mashed potatoes can ever do! Use more garlic if you like and you can also add more pepper or a little smoked paprika. Use regular salt and it's good, using truffled salt makes it OH SO GOOD! So good, so easy! Portion size is perfect for 2 people

Great tasting potatoes, & although the recipe didn't indicate one way or the other, I didn't peel the potatoes but simply diced them small ~ We love the taste of the peel, so . . . Also seasoned with about 1/2 teaspoon of lemon pepper & a very slight dash of salt! Definitely a wonderful mashed potato recipe! Thanks for sharing it!
