Sarasota's Five Minute Microwaved Mashed Potatoes
10 mins (prep 5, cooking 5)
9 ingredients
4-6 servings
I have been doing this for years and I love it. Five minutes in the micro, then add your favorite toppings or ingredients and you have mashed spuds. I like to add some butter, maybe a little chicken broth, you can do sour cream, chives, herbs, cheese, bacon, cream or milk. Pretty much anything you want. I am listing my basic recipe, but use your imagination. You can add anything you want to these. Nothing like mashed potatoes in 5-8 minutes without the boiling water, peeling or the time involved.
