June Meyer's Authentic Hungarian
Style Mashed Potatoes
(Magyaros tojasos krumplipure)
The lowly potato is often served at every Hungarian meal. It helped stretch the Goulyas and it was an important ingredient in many dumplings, soups, breads. Mashed potatoes made with real butter and sour cream and egg is usually a Sunday dinner treat. A gardening hint for those of you who plant potatoes. "Do not plant potatoes so deep that they can't hear the church bells" (Old Hungarian proverb).
Regards, June Meyer.
