The mashed potatoes to rival all, these Holiday Mashed Potatoes are perfect for special holidays!
When seasoning the potatoes, remember there are a lot of potatoes. Start with 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt and work your way up. I used 2 teaspoons in the end but taste after every small addition to avoid over-salting.
