Notice of Changes

You will notice that some of my albums are "empty" on my Facebook page and that some pages and pictures are missing on here and on Fibro, Fit and Fab!. Don't worry - they won't stay that way. :) In light of some recent events, I've had to watermark my photos and designed images. Until that is done and I get a chance to upload them, my FREE Fibro Banners and Badges and Inspirational Designs {By Me} pages will be down on Fibro, Fit and Fab!, and the albums under the same (or almost the same) names on my Facebook page will be empty, and pictures will be deleted and watermarked at various times for as long as it takes to get that done. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. Thank you for understanding! In the mean time, if there is an image you would like that you saw or have an idea for a new one, feel free to email me or leave me a comment, and I'll do what I can to get one to you. :)

Garlic Mahed Potatoes (Fish, Egg, Nut, Wheat and Soy-Free)



One side dish I never have trouble getting my kids to eat is mashed potatoes, especially if they are garlic mashed potatoes. :) This recipe is my own, rather simple, inexpensive and allergy-friendly on all accounts other than milk. Please note that they are fish, egg, nut and wheat-free, and only soy-free if you make sure to use all soy-free ingredients.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes
6 medium red potatoes, chopped into about 1 inch pieces
(russet type can be used, but you will have to peel them)

Water

1 teaspoon to 1 Tablespoon garlic salt (I reommend McCormick's)

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 Tablespoon dried parsley

4 Tablespoons (1/2 stick) salted, full-fat butter

1/2 Cup milk

1/2 Cup sour cream (I use Daisy Brand) (optional)

1. In medium pot, cover the chopped potatoes with just enough water to cover them.

2. Cook potatoes over high heat for 20 to 25 minutes (start to finish) or until the potatoes are fork tender (fork slides easily in and out of potatoes). (Keep an eye on the pot after the water begins to boil. You may have to turn the heat down to medium to keep them from boiling over.)

3. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot.

4. Add garlic salt (amount is based on personal preference), pepper (amount is based on personal preference here, too), parsley, butter, milk and sour cream (if using) and mash potatoes with a potato masher until desired consistency. (You can also use a hand mixer, but I prefer the masher. It's a good way to work out frustrations. :) )

Yields about six or so 1 Cup servings.
And that's it. Easy-peasy. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does! :)

    1. I think that's most people, Cindy. LOL :) I find that garlic salt makes it not quite so rough on the tummy vs. using fresh garlic, at least for some people. If you do try them, I hope that this recipe is easier on your tummy!

  2. I love to find "normal" recipes that are gluten free! Thanks for reminding me that my family can still eat yummy potatoes! I like this recipe so much that I will be featuring it this week on Gluten-Free Monday at OneCreativeMommy.com. Please stop by and grab a featured button if you’d like. I hope you’ll be back to link up again on Monday.
