Day 19: Wasabi Mashed Potatoes

Yield: 2-3 people
Time (Start to Finish): 25 min

7 small potatoes (I used 3 red and 7 yellow)
3 Tbsp wasabi
1 Tbsp cream cheese
1-2 Tbsp butter
¼ cup half and half
salt and pepper
garlic salt

1. Skin and boil the potatoes in water with lots of salt and then press them trough a ricer. You can also just mash them if you need to
2. Add wasabi (if dried, mix wasabi with water first to make a paste), cream cheese and butter and mix until evenly distributed, then add half and half
3. Add salt pepper and garlic salt to taste…I like a lot of garlic salt
4. Serve with a nice steak or any dish with a lot of sauce…the potatoes taste good with a wine sauce.

Rating: 2.5 strawberries
Notes: I think this needed maybe half an onion caramelized or something…maybe a clove of garlic...but something was missing. They were for sure tasty and good and I didn’t hesitate eating them, but an onion would have made them perfect…and thanks for the meal Travis! Good conversation always makes a meal better. The pic is of the steaks we had as well as some green beans we deep-fried in buttermilk and flour with an awesome secret Travis sauce…maybe it’ll be a later recipe!
