We have tried many mashed potato recipes here at Pinworthy Kitchen, but this one is our favorite. Chicken broth and thyme are unusual additions to this recipe, but they help give the potatoes a unique flavor that helps set them apart from other recipes. After a couple of hours of cooking, these potatoes are wonderfully tender and mash easily with the milk or cream, helping them reach that desired creamy texture. If you are looking for the perfect mashed potato recipe to try, this is it.
Mashed potatoes are a side dish that can be paired with any entree from seafood to steak to chicken to even sandwiches. One would be hard pressed to find a meal that these would not pair well with.
These are a quintessential make-and-forget side dish- simply toss the ingredients in a slow cooker and come back to mash them in a few hours. This dish pairs well with entrees that perhaps require a bit more work, therefore making such an easy side a natural pairing.
Another wonderful thing about this recipe is that it is frugal to make- with the exception of the potatoes, all of the other ingredients should be found in the average well-stocked kitchen.
