A new twist of mashed potatoes

I was very excited when I got the chance to try Sabra Hummus on the house via the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program! The even better part is they asked us to come up with a fun cocktail party use for the hummus. Not one to take the normal route John and I got to brainstorming ideas.

We ping ponged many a recipe back and forth but in the end we decided on this one... Mashed potatoes... steph chows style. Now for a cocktail party a simple scoop in a bowl wouldn't do the trick.. something fancier, and easily portable...

Enter in the vintage cookie press that was my Nana's, a tiny dessert glass and mini spoon, and we were ready for business!

Mashed yams with hummus anyone? With all of the flavors of hummus Sabra offers it would be easy to customize this to anyone's tastes. For us we went with the roasted red pepper variety. The recipe couldn't be simpler, and the creamy delicious texture is the perfect bowl of home style comfort.
