How to Make Mix and match mashed potato bakes


  1. Peel potatoes; cut into 2-inch pieces. Bring potatoes, 2 tsp. salt and water to cover to a boil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat; boil 20 minutes or until tender. Drain, return potatoes to Dutch oven, reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally. 3 to 5 minutes or until potatoes are dry.

  3. This is the basic potatoe recipe. Now here's 5 ways to change it up. Prepare above recipe but increase buttermilk to 1 1/4 cups. Stir in one of the combos below, and spoon the mixture into a lightly greased 2 1/2-qut. baking dish or 6(10-oz) ramekins. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.
