I realize that I am cutting it a bit close with the whole Thanksgiving side dish recipe just two days before the holiday, but if you are already planning on making mashed potatoes this year then I must insist that you try this delicious recipe. I found it in the Kansas City Star years ago, and as family Christmas takes place at my parents’ place I have made this every single year. My family has dubbed them “heart attack potatoes,” and claims that if you indulge in a second helping you had better keep a defribrillator close by. I always thought that was overdoing it a bit. True, there is a healthy amount of butter, sour cream and cheese in the dish, I like to think that the spinach and pimentos add some vital nutrition as compensation.
Hmm… Maybe it just feels better to think it’s healthy when I cover half my plate in potatoes. It’s the holidays, right? You’re supposed to pig out!
