Brian's Mashed Potato Trick

Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton

Our friend Brian Beadle is kind of a finicky eater -- he’s a meat and potatoes man. You could say he is sort of a "spuds specialist."

The butter melts into hidden pools buried deep in the mashed potatoes to be discovered with each delicious forkful.
