If you're not serving gravy with the mashed potatoes, try any of these ideas for perking up your potatoes:
• Sprinkle 1 cup crushed herb-seasoned croutons over potatoes.
• Sprinkle 1 can (2.8 ounces) French-fried onions over potatoes.
• Place purchased pesto in a resealable plastic bag; snip off a tiny corner and drizzle pesto over potatoes.
• Sprinkle shredded Parmesan cheese over potatoes.
