I promised a recipe for the best mashed potatoes ever and here it is.  Mashed potatoes are a must for comfort food dinners, and the holiday feasts would not be the same with out mashed potatoes.

There would be a revolt if there were no taters for the gravy.  Well these taters were the best.  The secret is the brown butter.  Brown butter adds a great nutty flavor that is the perfect compliment to the potatoes.

I want my mashed potatoes to compliment the gravy.  At Thanksgiving dinner, the gravy is where it’s at and these Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes are perfect.

My potato gratin is also a favorite for any holiday dinner and I’m loving this twice baked potato casserole and you can’t miss these Air Fryer Roasted Potatoes!

I may never go back to ordinary mashed potatoes again.  With the holidays fast approaching I have a gorgeous Le Creuset Serving Set to make your holiday table gorgeous!

lecreuset-serving-setYou know I have a thing for Le Creuset.  This serving set will make my Thanksgiving table so beautiful and will be perfect for entertaining throughout the year.  

I view every Le Creuset piece as an heirloom piece and they are my absolute favorites.
