For the second recipe, we decided on another timeless Thanksgiving classic: Mashed Potatoes.

What you will need: (Serves about 4)

  • 8-10 medium sized potatoes
  • ¼ cup of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of sour cream
  • ½ cup of margarine
  • salt (desired amount)
  • pepper (desired amount)
  • parsley flakes (to top)

Directions: (takes about 40 mins)

  1. Peel (or leave skin if desired), cut up and boil potatoes until tender
  2. Drain water and place potatoes into a large mixing bowl
  3. Add margarine, sour cream and milk. Mix until smooth and consistent
  4. Add salt and pepper to your desired taste (be sure to add a little at a time as to prevent over-seasoning)
  5. Add a few pats of margarine on top of finished potatoes to melt
  6. Finish with a sprinkle of parsley
