Authentic German Mashed Potatoes

German mashed potatoes are a classic side dish for all meat dishes with gravy such as Goulash, beef Rouladen, and are a great combination with fried liver, meat loaf and Bratwurst. Home made mashed potatoes are the best. Forget the ones out of the package. Even the all natural potato flakes that I tried are not comparable with the home made mashed potatoes. You just have to peel potatoes. Happy Cooking!
