Normally, I'm all over the buttery mashed potatoes - delicious, buttery goodness. But it is nice to mix it up sometimes. One of my favourite butter substitutes is throwing in some cream cheese. Tonight we had no cream cheese though, so I had to reach for something else.
Today's butter substitute - hummus. It turned out really nicely and added that yummy garlicky flavour that I always enjoy in my mashed potatoes. I think it would be better if you had butter and hummus though...they were still a little bit dry, but still yummy.
So there you go, my quick public service announcement about potatoes. What do you like to add to your mashed potatoes? I love that everyone has their own particular way of making them.
There should be more blog posts to come this week - the living room and baby's room are getting painted on Wednesday!
