Mashed Potatoes

We’ve done a few different mashed potato recipes already. But this one is different from the others, but still delicious! There’s a ton of flavor in this recipe! And it’s a good thing too, because potatoes, if not properly seasoned, can be bland.

Luckily, we’ve got our Fresh Churned French Onion Butter with Asiago Cheese to make them taste amazing. And dry ranch seasoning too. They compliment each other really well! No bland potatoes here!

Making Potatoes Creamy

Potatoes are filled with starch, so they’ll be dry unless you do something to help them. The French Onion Butter adds some creaminess, especially since it’s whipped. But it’s not enough.

We use half and half in our recipe– which is half cream and half milk. Combined with the butter, it makes the potatoes light and fluffy.

Salt

We rarely have a section just about salt, but it’s important. Salt is the most important part of this dish. As much flavor as we get from the ranch seasoning and the French Onion Butter, you still need some salt.

Salt helps to bring out the other flavors– salty is hardly ever used to make something “salty,” but to compliment the other flavors and to help them shine. Don’t forget it here. I’d start by adding a teaspoon, then taste it. Add more if you need to.

Enjoy!

    Suggestion. Could you have some printed recipes for your representatives to give out with a purchase? Or perhaps even a few suggestions ( with amounts) printed inside the lid. I finally bought some due to a great sales rep … he did give some suggestions on uses but I am a visual person and do not have a printer right now. I hesitated on purchasing for several years because I wasn’t sure how I would use the different flavors. Or… how about an inexpensive Shamy cookbook?

    Hi Cindy. That’s a great idea to have some recipes included in a purchase, I’ll pass it along to the appropriate people. We do have cookbooks for sale, under the “Our Products” tab. Thanks!
