Liven up traditional mashed potatoes with the bright flavor of dill! These flavorful dill mashed potatoes are a great twist on the classic.
Mashed potatoes are one of my absolute favorite side dishes. I serve them just about any time I can. Whether it’s with gravy and my favorite deep fried chicken wings or along side meatloaf with cream sauce,and of course the Turkey Thighs at Thanksgiving mashed potatoes are my go to side.
In most cases mashed potatoes are usually served with some kind of gravy or sauce to spoon over the top. While that is great, sometimes it’s nice to have a mashed potato side dish that stands on its own. Adding herbs to the mix does just that.
Adding dill to mashed potatoes makes them bright and fresh. A lightened up flavor of mashed potatoes if you will. They can stand alone and are full of flavor. Let’s talk about what you’ll need to make them:
Dill Mashed Potatoes are pretty easy to make, follow along with these step by step photos and instructions showing you just how easy it is.
STEP #1: Place potatoes in a large pot of water. Bring to a boil and cook just until the potatoes are fork tender. Drain.
STEP #2: Return the potatoes to the pan and add remaining ingredients. You can use a potato masher or a hand held mixer to whip the potatoes. If you use a hand held mixer be careful not to over mix the potatoes or they can become gummy.
These will keep in the refrigerator for 3 days. Reheat over low heat until warmed through.
