Mashed potatoes are honestly one of my favorite side dishes. I can’t imagine any holiday without them.

The great thing about this recipe is that you can not only add the ingredients in the recipe, but also add whatever extras you’d like such as onions, green onions, broccoli, and more.

But, if there’s something else you’d like, feel free to add it to the recipe.

The potatoes are so creamy and filled with flavor that it’s really hard to stop at one serving. But, if you have to, there are enough potatoes here to feed about twelve people a regular-sized helping.
