Spud lovers: October 18th is National Mashed Potato Day. We’ve assembled our collection of mashed potato recipes for this tater-licious occasion.
In fact, it’s tough to decide which recipe to make first.
Whether you’re looking for comfort food (a burger stuffed with mashed potatoes, photo #3), something fancy (causa morada purple mashed potato stacks), elegant (lobster mashed potatoes), or simply fabulous (rainbow mashed potatoes—photo #1), we’ve got these recipes and so much more.
More potato celebrations: August 19th is National Potato Day, September is National Potato Month, and in 2019, the Idaho Potato Commission has declared that every fourth Thursday in November is National Mashed Idaho® Potato Day.
