Recipe: Sour Cream Smashed Potatoes with Fried Shallots - Friendsgiving Recipes

Recipe: Sour Cream Smashed Potatoes with Fried Shallots - Friendsgiving Recipes
From The Kitchn - November 9, 2017

Mashed potatoes are one of the most beloved items on the Thanksgiving table. While you might need to keep things classic at your traditional family Thanksgiving, it's fine to jazz things up a bit for Friendsgiving, when you are surrounded by your friends and not fussy aunts and uncles. These mashed potatoes take a little walk on the wild side and taste like a bag of sour cream and onion potato chips. And yes, that's a very good thing.

This side dish is actually inspired by one of my favorite foods from my Ukrainian heritage: varenyky. Better known by their Polish moniker, pierogi, varenyky are boiled dumplings commonly filled with mashed potatoes laced with fried onions, and served with more fried onions and sour cream on top. Truly, they are a carb-lover's dream. Varenyky are typically a weekend project for the whole family that culminates in a grand feast of stuffed pasta (followed shortly by nap time).
