Loaded Mashed Potato Balls filled with Cheddar Cheese and baked to perfection. 

The best thing about Thanksgiving is the leftovers, am I right?

I mean… in the Dominican Republic we call this “EL CALENTAO” which means heating the leftovers (LOL). I know right? That is one of my favorites things to do (Dominican and proud baby!) [Inserts Dominican flag emoji]

Are you ready for some storytime? Ok…here we go.

I posted this  Perfect Mashed Potatoes recipe about a year ago.

One of my first lessons in culinary school included exactly this: how to make perfect mashed potatoes, Oh man! Making mashed potatoes sounded like art to me back then, and still does. There’s nothing better than creamy and buttery mashed potatoes.

I kind of have a pet peeve when it comes to mashed potatoes and mangu (a traditional Dominican dish) If it is not properly seasoned (meaning it does not have enough salt) if it does not have enough butter, I DONT WANT IT, I REPEAT I DONT WANT IT. Thank you Next!
