    Really good mashed potatoes don't need gravy.

    See, it's my belief that mashed potatoes (potatoes in general, really… even Yukon Golds) are just conduits for butter and salt. Without those two things, they are basically packing peanuts. They take up space and taste like nothingness. It's no surprise, then, that people feel the need to put other things in them — sour cream, Parmesan cheese, bacon bits, so forth and so on. When people say they love mashed potatoes, they are saying they love butter and salt, because that's what makes them edible.

    You, my friend, have never the had the pleasure of eating old school riced potatoes.

    Fluffy, creamy, and delicious. Add some fresh parsley and a kiss of garlic and you have something going on. No need to dump gravy on them and please, no bacon. The potato is the star and needs no understudy.

    Just boil your taters, rice them, delicately add some butter, a pinch of salt, and a dash of room temp cream. Fold it in as though you were doing heart surgery on a 5 year old.

    Experience potato Nirvana.

    Disagree. But over-salting and slathering butter on everything except what you slather with mayonnaise will ruin your ability to appreciate subtle flavor as surely as smoking will. I don't cook much, but I can appreciate properly-cooked mashed potatoes with the best of'em. Baked also. We often eat baked potatoes with nothing but lemon pepper.

    It's like corn on the cob. When I was a kid, everybody slathered butter on it, then salted the hell out of it. Now, I don't put anything on mine...by choice. I actually get to taste the corn that way.

    1. "beer milkshake;"
    2. wine-spiked watermelon;
    3. chicken fried steak.

    Keep it up, people. I'm developing quite a list of these. They're filed under "how to ruin 2 perfectly good food items by combining them somehow."
