Mashed potatoes are a must on the Thanksgiving menu. But instead of the same old thing, try something different this year with browned butter mashed potatoes. Start by mashing the potatoes with the tanginess of Braum’s buttermilk, then adding salt, pepper and nutmeg. Then make the browned butter, by melting and cooking Braum’s Salted Butter. Once it’s reached golden brown, pour over the potatoes. These potatoes are so good you won’t need gravy. Browned butter is like liquid gold on top of already delicious buttermilk mashed potatoes. Browning the butter gives a nuttiness and intense flavor.

Delicious barbecue cooked low and slow takes hours, but our recipe brings a lot of flavor in a fraction of the time.

Two types of cheese – Parmesan and cheddar – round out the flavor of this macaroni and cheese you’ll eat with a spoon.
