I then made the mix using boiling water, butter, cream before adding the the two items together. Once blended, it had an unappealing chalk-like texture resembling instant potatoes. The package encourages you to add bacon, parsley, chives, and sour cream, even cheese. I think the idea is to disguise the taste.
The texture was thin and runny. I refrigerated the results hoping for better results the next day.
Mashed Potatoes Alternatives
* Grilled veggies
*Roasted Turnips with Parmesan
* Carrot fries ( Cut baby carrots in half. Spray with butter cooking spray and baked in oven @ 400 until tender or crisp depending on your preference.)
* Steamed Cauliflower is still a go to. ( It can be fancied up with sour cream, chives, or cheese.)
Summary: I'll be planning on using something else for Thanksgiving.
