For consumers looking for a new way to enjoy a festive side of mashed potatoes, this recipe by Dude Foods creatively turns the food into a fried treat designed for easy snacking and dipping. Despite the new format, the dish still encompasses all the traditional flavors of the meal along with a cranberry dipping sauce infused with a ginger shandy.
Traditionally at holiday meals mashed potatoes are a staple, but they tend to stick to a conservative whipped texture. This recipe creatively fills an ice cube tray with mashed potatoes with added butter. Once frozen the potato squares are breaded they are deep fried and served along with a reduced sugar and cranberry ginger shandy sauce. The boozy drink adds an aromatic and spiced element to the dipping reminiscent of a cranberry spread.
