Just a few simple ingredients can transform classic mashed potatoes into the perfect partner for any dish:

Apple Mashed Potatoes
Add a grated red skinned eating apple, tossed in a little lemon juice to the mash just before serving.

Horseradish Mashed Potatoes for Roast Beef
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.

Caramelised Onion Mashed Potatoes
Add caramelised onions to a bowl of mash to serve with beef casserole

Herb Mashed Potatoes
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.
