Spinach can be quite nice too, mixed into the cheese sauce (but not sprouts; ew). Mash protip: bake your potatoes then scoop out the flesh once they've cooled a bit. Takes longer but results in flawless, super fluffy mash that's also super easy to... well, mash. Use leftover hollowed out potato skin...

I do think a lot of popular recipes skew sweeter than they need to be. At the risk of generalising, I always leave out at LEAST 1/4 of the sugar in any American recipe.
