What are the best addon ingredients to take mashed potatoes to the next level?
- Nikki PLv 71 month agoFavourite answer
not all at one time but try any of these
Cheese and garlic
garlic and use cream not milk
cheese, chives, bacon
and one not so obvious but make sure you add enough salt. Potatoes suck up salt so you can add a bit more without them being overly salty

Cheese, onions,, celery, savory, an egg, crustless pieces of bread.

Either or a combination of the below ingredients will take mashed potatoes up a notch:
Chopped sweet onions, raw, used when mashing potatoes or boil onions with potatoes
When using red potatoes, keep the skins on and mash as usual
Try Yukon Gold potatoes for mashing...soo good
Add a handful of thawed peas, mixed in after mashing
Mash or sprinkle with your favorite shredded cheese
A dollop of mayonnaise or sour cream while mashing
Use cream instead of milk
Scallions or chives
Onion and or garlic powder
Sprinkle with a mixture of garlic. Chopped rosemary and olive oil
Bake potatoes, cut in half, remove potatoes from skin without ruining the skin. Mash potatoes as desired, mix in cheese and frozen mixed veggies. Restuff potatoes and bake. Always a big hit.
Also. This is a great way to bake a potato...use an apple corer to remove a plug from a raw potato and insert a breakfast sausage into the hole. Bake as usual for a pre-season delightful baked potato!

Nutmeg works really well. Also watercress in mashed potatoes is good too

Garlic. You can buy pre-prepared rubs which can be fantastic.
