What’s your number one side dish for thanksgiving? If you said creamy mashed potatoes, you’re my people. These babies can give even the driest turkey life. They are smooth, silky and flavor packed. Mashed potatoes have always been a holiday and cold weather dinner side dish staple in my family – an actual hug in a bowl.

Mashed potatoes are the ultimate side for the whole family, toddlers love them, adults can’t get enough and if you have a baby in the house, this is a great way to introduce potatoes. If you don’t want to give your baby dairy and spices just yet, set aside some of the plain potatoes and mash / blend with breast milk or formula.
