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.

Perfectly tender flat iron steak topped with savory herb roasted mushrooms.
A super easy halloween snack of popcorn, pretzels, candy corn, M&M’s and cookies tossed in sweet white chocolate. So easy the kids can help make it!
