100% obsessed with this creamy buttermilk ranch mashed potatoes recipe! They’re easy to make, perfectly fluffy and creamy, and made with the tastiest fresh herb ranch seasoning.
Three delicious words for you today: RANCH MASHED POTATOES.
(Need I say more?)
After having made my favorite classic mashed potatoes recipe for Thanksgiving these past few years, I thought it would be fun to mix things up a bit for our upcoming Friendsgiving fiesta here in our home in two weeks. I didn’t want to go too wild and crazy with seasonings, because we’ve learned after living here in Barcelona for a few years that our European friends absolutely adore American-style mashed potatoes, and they have already commented that they’re looking forward to the classics again this Thanksgiving. But I figured, hey, what could be more American than adding a generous drizzle of ranch onto your favorite foods? 😉
Turns out, these ranch mashed potatoes were indeed a very delicious idea.
I opted to nix the old-school ranch seasoning packet in favor of adding fresh ranch seasoning instead, including lots of fresh garlic, lots and lots of fresh ranch herbs (parsley, dill and chives), and fresh (instead of powdered) buttermilk. And when mixed into my creamy, buttery, fluffy, tried-and-true mashed potatoes recipe, I’m telling you, this ingredient combo was a match made in mashed potato heaven. So fresh and flavorful and delicious. And I’m happy to report that our friends who taste-tested them with us this weekend gave them two thumbs up too.
Let’s make some ranch mashed potatoes!
