One day, I wanted to make my mashed potatoes more interesting, so I added a carrot and some onion. This delightful dish adds color to any entree and makes an attractive plate.


  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Pinch sugar


  1. Place the vegetables in a saucepan, cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes or until tender.
  2. Drain and place vegetables in a bowl; mash until smooth. Add the cream, butter, salt, pepper and sugar; mix well.
