One of my favorite side dishes from my childhood is mashed potatoes with carrots. I don't know if my stepmom did it so that we would eat our veggies without complaining, but whatever the reason it worked. To this day it's one of my favorite things to make with my Chicken Fried Steaks.
It's so so easy, if you can make mashed potatoes, then you can make this.
Start by boiling your potatoes, add in some sliced carrots and some salt.
When the potatoes and carrots are tender, remove them from the pan and into a serving bowl.
I then add 4 tablespoons of butter. You can add as much as you want, really, I've added a LOT more before, but who's checking right? LOL
Next goes in some salt and pepper. I use a potato masher to mash everything up, but I also like throwing it in my food processor and REALLY mooshing it up LOL
Stir in some milk and continue mooshing (LOL I'm sorry but I like that word) until nice and creamy and fluffy.
Mmmmmmmm.........now I am really in the mood for some chicken fried steak and some mashed potatoes with carrots.
