150+ Delicious Toppings for a Mashed Potato Bowl
In recent years, mashed potatoes have been elevated from a simple side dish to the star of the show. These days you can find mashed potato bars at weddings, and there are restaurants whose offerings revolve around them.
Basically, a mashed potato bowl is a just what it sounds like: mashed potatoes with all sorts of items on top or mixed in.
It is not a new concept to many people, especially those of us who like to mix all of our food on the plate together. Since I can remember, one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving is getting some mashed potatoes and mixing in some leftover turkey, stuffing, and gravy. Talk about comfort food.
So for those of you who love mashed potatoes as much as I do, and who want to come up with some new ways to eat them, here is the list for you.
You'll find all sorts of options that you've probably never thought of before, and if you eat something that didn't make the list, I'd love to hear about it in the comments section at the bottom.
