Variations / Options
I like to add 1 ½ cups of frozen peas to this recipe. Vegetarians may want to add milk to the mashed potatoes to make it bit more creamy. Vegans may use almond milk. Take out of the oven and sprinkle Almond Cheese (vegans) or a bit of Cheddar Cheese not top. Broil 5 minutes to melt. Don’t forget to account for the extra calories.
