Preparing Smashed Potatoes
Preparing smashed potatoes isn’t a great deal, and provided that you have the right cooking ingredients; you may as well forget serving turkey for the next three Thanksgiving calendar. If you are serious about serving smashed potato for Thanksgiving, all that may be required of you is to have the right quantity of creamed cheese, butter, seasoned salt, and not forgetting potatoes.
- All the potatoes must be peeled and diced accordingly to ensure that they are almost of the same size. Place the diced potatoes in a saucepan, add water and salt accordingly, and leave to boil on medium-high heat conditions until the potatoes get soft. The boiling can take approximately 20-25 minutes.
- Remove the boiled potatoes from the heat, drain off the water.
- Add the butter, creamed cheese to the mashed potatoes. Stir the mixture for the ingredients to combine, and this procedure should be done for about 1-2 minutes.
- The final method involves allowing the mixture to thicken, and this typically only takes about 4-5 minutes. After that, the smashed potato Thanksgiving meal will be ready for serving.
