Mashed Potato "Mistake"

This happened to me a couple of months ago. I was making my family's favorite "smashed" potatoes, when I realized I didn't have any milk in the house. Bad news. Everything else was ready! I quickly looked in the fridge and found a bottle of blue cheese salad dressing and I thought, "why not?"


Well, I'm very pleased to say that my family, including in-laws!, LOVED it and "begged" for the recipe. All I did was substitute the salad dressing for the milk!

I've since tried ranch in my garlic smashed potatoes, turns out to be another "family favorite".

"Accidents" aren't always bad!
