Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes Deluxe

There’s always potatoes in my pantry, usually several different kinds. We really love potatoes and I make them many different ways. I like certain types for different uses. The Yukon Gold potatoes are my favorite for mashed. The texture is creamy, they have a buttery taste and they even hold well if you need to make them a day ahead of time.

My last post was on my Favorite Glazed Meatloaf, and I made these mashed potatoes to go with that meatloaf. I’ve also made them to go with other meats, unless I’m making gravy, then I just make them plain. I don’t make gravy for meatloaf, so these potatoes are perfect. The bacon, onion and cheese really complimented the meatloaf. I think it’s a perfect dinner and one that we have often, especially at this time of year.

Sitting down at the table for a good home cooked meal is important to me. Sure, we could eat out often, but I would rather eat out at home!
