The Best Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes perfect for every day meals or special holiday meals. The best mashed potatoes ever!
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.
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!
