Just a few simple ingredients can transform classic mashed potatoes into the perfect partner for any dish:
Add a grated red skinned eating apple, tossed in a little lemon juice to the mash just before serving.
Try adding a teaspoon or two of horseradish sauce to the mash just before serving with beef.
Stir in 1-2 teaspoons of pesto or mustard per person.
Add caramelised onions to a bowl of mash to serve with beef casserole
Mix in chopped fresh herbs such as oregano or dill, which are delicious with chicken or fish, or try basil or thyme if you're serving the mash with a tomato-based dish.
