Mashed Potato Bar is one of my favourite dishes. My grandmother used to make this for nearly every occasion. I and my elder sister loved eating it. My sister soon learnt the Mashed Potato Bar Recipe from her. I still remember when she made this dish at home for the first time after my grandmother left for her heavenly abode. It brought both tears and smile on my face. Now, I too have learnt the recipe of Mashed Potato Bar from her. Whenever I feel lonely, I treat myself with Mashed Potato Bar and relive all those memories.
As for mashed potatoes, the recipes for making it first appeared in 1747 with an entry in The Art of Cookery by Hannah Glasse. They can be used as an intermediary ingredient for some other dishes like dumplings or a side dish to meat or vegetables.
