It is well known that I can just about eat my weight in mashed potatoes. I have never met a mashed potato that I haven’t liked. Be it plain creamy mashed potatoes, horseradish and sour cream mashed potatoes, cheesy mashed potatoes or whatever, I could go on and on and now I have yet another variety to add to the mix. Whipped with butter, milk, buttermilk and scallions these are creamy, dreamy, potato-y, scallion-y goodness.
You know what’s funny. Yesterday, 1 1/2 weeks before Thanksgiving, Ryan turned to me and said “I think I need to start eating better.” I giggled. Silly, silly man it’s the holiday season. Statements like “I need to start eating better” are reserved for January 1. In the mean time I’ll continue to make dishes like these scallion buttermilk mashed potatoes. Hey they are a little bit better for you since they don’t require gravy. Right? Yeah, riiiiiiiight.
Note: scallions is just a prettier word for green onions.
Chicken tenderloins crusted in BBQ chips and baked until crispy. The perfect kid food!
Fluffy scrambled eggs with peppered bacon and chives. A childhood favorite kicked up.
Golden fried halloumi on garlic toast and drizzled with lemon capper oil.
Fish coated in panko, fried until golden and dunked in a spicy Cajun tartar sauce.
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches kicked up with bbq sauce, chicken, red onions and cilantro.
Spiralized sweet potato noodles, smoky sausage and tender spinach.
