Sarah's BBQ Part Two - Mashed Potatoes

Mashed Potatoes to me are a MUST at any Barbecue. The Lovely Wife wanted to make a Potato Salad but I insisted on Mash simply because my little princess wanted Mashed Potatoes, so how could I refuse?
This was a little last minute as I had forgotten about the potatoes as I was busy with starting the BBQ and all sorts of other tasks. But I guess that's the beauty of Mashed Potatoes. As long as you have already boiled the potatoes, the rest is dead easy!

I dont think a recipe is required for mashed potatoes, but this is what I did:

8 potatoes - peeled, cut into quarters and boiled till soft
Generous Glob of Mayonnaise
Glob of soft Butter
Dash of Salt and Pepper
Spash of milk
Spring Onions for garnish

See? Nothing easier. Just mash all the ingredients together, tasting every now and again and you have a lovely creamy dish of mashed potatoes. Dress it up a little with some chopped Spring Onions for a 'wow' factor!

My little princess enjoyed the mash and that was all it needed to vindicate me from the Potato Salad that the Lovely Wife kept insisting would be much better. Sometimes, not often, but sometimes, Daddy really Does know best!

Love mashed potatoes. Love potato salad.
Maybe both next time.
I'm always a trouble maker.

It's interesting that mashed potatoes epitomize BBQ for you. For me, mashed potatoes are all about winter and saucy foods like gravy and roasted meats.

For me BBQ sides are coleslaw, corn on the cob, potato salad, bean salad....

I've never had mash at a BBQ - I am all about the potato salad! But this is such a great looking mash!
