Gluten-Free Mashed Potatoes

If mashed potatoes arent the epitome of a cozy food, I dont know what is. They are both filling to the belly and warm to the soul all while being soothing as well.

I love how versatile gluten-free mashed potatoes are too. You can jazz them up with herbs and even cream cheese or you can keep them super simple.

I always save leftovers to make our shepherds pie or potato cakes. The potato water also makes up a delicious non-alcoholic vodka martini! See what I mean about versatile? So many ways to use them!

Mashed Potato Mix-Ins

Get creative with what flavors and herbs you like for those mashed potato mix-ins. Here are a few of my favorites to get you thinking

  • Butter
  • Milk
  • Sour cream
  • Cream cheese
  • Boursin cheese (THE BEST!)
  • Cheddar, gouda, mozzarella (or basically any other cheese)
  • Chives, sage, parsley, oregano or cilantro for a kick
  • Fresh ground pepper and salt
  • Smoked paprika
  • Diced, cooked veggies
  • Splash of lemon juice

How to make gluten-free mashed potatoes

  • Start by washing your potatoes really good and cubing them

Pro Tip: Organic is best as potatoes are on the dirty dozen list. However, a good wash is needed no matter what as we leave the skins on for flavor and more nutrients.

  • Place cubed potatoes in a pot and cover with water above 1/2-1 inch over and cook on medium heat until fork tender
  • Drain water (reserve for those non-alcoholic dirty martinis I told you about earlier) and place potatoes into a stand mixer
  • Add herbs, butter, salt and pepper and mix well, about 1 minute

Step by step gluten-free mashed potatoes

  • Add sour cream and milk then continue mixing for 1 more minute
  • Feel free to add more fresh herbs
  • Serve up hot with butter or our gluten-free gravy

Can you make these dairy-free?

You can absolutely make these dairy-free! Simply swap the butter with dairy-free butter and use a dairy-free sour cream or even better, a full fat dairy-free milk.

If you do go with dairy-free milk, just use 1/4-1/3 C instead of the sour cream and 2 T milk listed in the recipe.

What goes good with gluten-free mashed potatoes?

When you think of the best meal with mashed potatoes, I bet it is Thanksgiving. So for that reason, we recommend our gluten-free green bean casserole, gluten-free turkey and gluten-free stuffing with these delicious mashed potatoes.

They are also great with our gluten-free cornbread casserole or inside our tasty gluten-free chicken pot pie. Our mashed potatoes would be fantastic with Half Baked Harvests roasted beef tenderloin with mushrooms as well!
