I know they’re bad for you. But really, is there anything better than being able to pop some wedges in the oven and half an hour later having a nice crispy side to your meal? Or whipping up instant mashed potato to top off your shepherd’s pie?
Cuz if there’s one food that I love but hate making, it’s mashed potatoes. Laborious, time consuming and somehow there’s never enough to satisfy you! (OK, maybe that’s just me). Instant stuff does the job just as well for some things. Nothing beats creamy mashed potato and gravy alongside some meat, but who wants to peel, chop, boil and mash up potatoes just to go into a dish like shepherd’s pie or my strange cornbeef fritter recipe? NOT me!
