Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Scallions
Welcome to 2016, and a steaming hot bowl of Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Scallions. Now you didn’t really think I would begin the New Year with a juicing, cleansing, join the gym Post did you?
Not that I’ve anything against juicing, but heaven knows we hear plenty of it after the holidays, along with stories on heading out to the gym, so I’ll leave these to the experts.
Besides, I did host a rather lovely party on New Year’s Day with the theme being ‘lucky foods’ where mashed potatoes, while not holding any lucky associations that I know of, most certainly fit into the ‘must have’ category when serving the fattened pork roast insuring our happiness, lots of greens for our abundant good fortune, and the sauerkraut for our anticipated long lives.
With the Pork simmering in slow cookers, and assorted dishes easily prepared earlier in the day, it always seems to me that among the holidays New Year’s Day is actually the easiest to prepare.
The one exception is that I have a preference for cooking and whipping the mashed potatoes just before serving.
This year I got a kick out of having the opportunity to demonstrate whipping up today’s mashed potatoes for my guests using my final appliance of 2015 that I received from Hamilton Beach for testing. It felt kind of official in a fun sort of way. Fortunately, I had remembered to photograph the appliance beforehand so you can view the lovely brand new hard plastic case that holds assorted beating and whipping attachments which the mixer sets right atop of for easy storage, I love that feature.
The Hamilton Beach Hand Mixer with the Snap- On Case, as all the Hamilton Beach appliances I’ve ever owned is easy to use. But mostly, and with guests agreeing, the hand mixer certainly whips up some deliciously fluffy and creamy Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Scallions.
Wishing You and Yours the fruits of lucky foods and a delicious whipped mix for a very Happy, Healthy, and Abundant New Year 2016!
I received this Hand Mixer from Hamilton Beach for trying and testing out. All opinions expressed about this appliance are sincere and my own.
