Turn Leftover Mashed Potatoes Into a Delicious Dip

Turn Leftover Mashed Potatoes Into a Delicious Dip

There’s a fine line between a hot dip and a casserole. Both have golden brown tops and creamy interiors, but the difference lies in how you transport them to your mouth. If you can use a chip or a cracker as a delivery system, it’s a dip—that’s the rule.

Meal Prep Potatoes By Par-Cooking Them in the Instant Pot

One of the most challenging things about meal planning is predicting what future you is going to want to eat. I am very bad at this, as my palate often craves last-minute adventure, but one thing that always excites is potatoes.

Make These Thanksgiving Classics Even Better

Make These Thanksgiving Classics Even Better

Certain dishes can be found at nearly every Thanksgiving table, and the Lifehacker table is no different. For our little family meal, deputy editor Alice Bradley was tasked with the mashed potatoes and stuffing—two icons amongst turkey—and I was tasked with helping her make them shine. With two secret (some would say “polarizing”) ingredients, a random piece of metal, and just a bit of...

You Don't Have to Drain These Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes

You Don't Have to Drain These Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes

One of my favorite things to cook in the Instant Pot (or any pressure cooker) is root vegetables that would otherwise take much longer. Potatoes most certainly fall into this category, especially since you can make perfectly creamy mashed potatoes entirely in the Instant Pot, no draining required.

Most Instant Pot mashed potato recipes have you cook your potatoes in a steamer basket over a...

Transform Cold Mashed Potatoes Into a Delicious Dip

Transform Cold Mashed Potatoes Into a Delicious Dip

Mashed potatoes are a brilliant cold-weather comfort food but, when combined with olive oil, lemon and garlic, they are the perfect base for a savory, summer-appropriate dip.

This tangy, garlicky spread—which is Greek in origin and called sklordalia—is pretty easy to make, and requires ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. First, blanched almonds, lemon juice, and raw garlic...
