Mashed potatoes are a reliable crowd-pleaser but that doesn't mean you can't add new flavor profiles to it. Try one of these three variations on a classic:

1 Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain and keep warm.

2 Using a whisk, gently crush the potatoes but do not mash. Mix well.

3 To the cooked bacon, add onions, then cooked potatoes. Add olive oil, herbs, and seasoning. Mix with potatoes.



Pommes Duchesse

A French variation of mashed potato.


1 kilo potatoes, cut in chunks
2 tablespoons butter
2 egg yolks
salt and pepper to taste



1 Peel, boil, and mash the potatoes.

2 Mix in butter, then the egg yolks. Season with salt and pepper.

3 Using a pastry bag, pipe mixture onto a lightly greased baking pan.
