Mashed potatoes are potatoes that have been mashed. It’s an extremely popular side–dish paired with meat. Mashed potatoes were created because potatoes look better after they are crushed into a sort of paste, which can’t be said about many things.
Mashed potatoes are generally mixed with salt, butter, and milk in order to improve their flavor and consistency. They generally taste good and offer an exclusive look into the properties of starch.
Mashed Potatoes became an official snack on June 15th 2012.
