Cilantro Mash



I love mashed potatoes like any proud American should love mashed potatoes. Sometimes, though, they can be cloying. Too heavy, too mucky, too cloying. So here’s a nice way to freshen them up. summer-time tots, kind of. I made them the other night with barbecue chicken pieces and sauted zucchini. I took my evening meal with some 2 Buck and a few episodes of Say Yes to The Dress. The four of us had a lovely night.

 You’ll need…

  •  yellow tots
  • large bunch of fresh cilantro
  • garlic
  • tabasco (optional)
  • parmesan cheese
  • butter
  • milk
  • s & p

 Make the potatoes as you normally would make mashed potatoes, then add the chopped or blended cilantro. This would also work with other fresh herbs that you need to use up, like basil or chives. The herbs turn the mash a lovely bright green color. Top with Parmesan cheese and broil for a few minutes for a delish cheesy layer on top.
