What Goes with Mashed Potatoes
Turkey and mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving dinner is one of the most classic combos in the American cuisine. The creaminess and tenderness of the mashed potatoes offer a perfect balance to the saltiness of the meat.
Corned beef has such strong rich and salty flavors, you’ll want something starchy to absorb all of that juicy goodness. And that’s nothing a clean and simple mashed potato can’t do.
Another classic pairing is fried chicken and mashed potatoes. The succulent entrée is flavorful, and even has that crispy on the outside, tender on the inside quality.
And the best side to go with that mouth-watering fried chicken is a smooth and creamy starch. Enter mashed potatoes.
Catfish, when coated in cornmeal batter and deep-fried to perfection, is such a delectable Southern dish. It tastes fantastic with other Southern dishes, such as hush puppies and fried okra, but you also can’t go wrong with mashed potatoes!
The mild flavor plus the lightness of the fish go beautifully with the rich and heavy side. Together, they make a well-balanced and drool-worthy meal.
Chicken Cordon Bleu
Here’s another chicken dish that my taste buds find so irresistible. There’s just something about the combination of tender chicken, sweet ham, and creamy cheese that’s so heavenly.
And when you eat that crispy dish with tender and creamy mashed potatoes, oh boy. What a fabulous feast!
