I absolutely love mash potato. I feel that I shouldn't always mash them and leave the lovely little things looking nice and round and smooth but I can never resist! Just looking for ideas on how to pep it up a bit for more variety, thanks

Spring onion mash, leek mash, garlic mash, pesto mash (red pesto mash is especially good stuff).

Colcannon, Champ, I could go on...

Butter. Salt. Butter. More butter.

If I'm feeling really exotic, maybe some cabbage to make colcannon. And some more butter.

Actually, I try to discourage my potatoes from having sex for money!

omg - wholgrain mustard mash is AMAZING with pork loin or chops. Just stir in a couple of tablespoons with all the butter, taste, add more if necessary. yum.

Butter, a bit of milk, leek (cooked in butter first) and bacon. Delicious.
DP makes mustard mash, which is also very nice.

A dollop of mayo is good.

We like carrot and/or swede mashed in with potato

I boil a couple of garlic cloves with the potatoes, and mash them in together.

Rosemary, garlic and sour cream

Wasabi. Seriously. Teriyaki salmon on a bed of wasabi mash, soy green beans on the side - awesome.

cream cheese

or other cheese
