Monster Mash

Monster Mash

  • Potatoes
  • Rutabaga (or turnip)
  • Salt
  • Butter
  • Minced garlic
  • Horseradish
  • Canned milk
A good mash makes a meal, and this one is a monster. We like yellow potatoes, like Yukon Gold or German Butterball. You can substitute turnip for rutabaga, but it's not as pretty. Our horseradish is the home-ground. Quantities: use good judgment.
  1. Begin by boiling your rutabaga, because it takes longer than the potatoes.

  2. When the rutabaga is about half done, put in the potatoes (leaving a good bit of skin on them), and cook all until ready to crumble.

  3. Drain the spuds & rutabaga.

  4. Melt butter in the pot and add garlic & horseradish.

  5. Put the spuds & rutabaga back into the pot and mash. Leave some lumps.

  6. Finish off with enough canned milk to make the texture you want, and a little salt.
