Our Favorite Mashed Potatoes – Thanksgiving Dinner Recipe

Those Thanksgiving staples at the dinner table are irreplaceable, and a great recipe  for of those staples is something that you will make over and over again, not only for Thanksgiving, but all year round.  This is a recipe that my whole extended family loves and it is a crowd pleaser no matter what the occasion.  This twist on the normal mashed potatoe recipe has a few odd sounding ingredients but is packed with flavor.  Red potatoes are the star of this dish, and save you time in the kitchen because it cuts out the peeling process. If  you are in charge of bringing the mashed...
