The beauty of this mashed potato is that aside from the standard one-potato-per-person, the quantities and varieties of vegetable or cheese are entirely up to you and what's left in the pantry.
COMBINATION MASHED POTATO
Total time commitment: Varies depending on potato size, but roughly 30 minutes
Recipe adapted from Mama's jacket potatoes
2 medium-to-large potatoes
Frozen peas and beans
1 carrot, diced
A couple of florets of broccoli, chopped
1. Steam the potatoes and vegetables (excluding tomato) in whatever way you prefer - microwave or stove top. If you have an hour spare, you can roast the potatoes, but for this I don't bother. Grate some cheese while you wait.
2. When they are done, cut the potatoes into small cubes (don't burn yourself, please) and put into a bowl with some butter. Mash until they are suitably mashed to your taste. Add the steamed vegetables, diced tomatoes, and grated cheese, and combine. The cheese should melt into the potato and be all delicious. Best eaten while sitting on the couch watching some trashy television.
