IGN’s David Griffin asked Markus and McFeely if there were any moments in writing Infinity War or Endgame that was deemed “going too far” when they presented it to the producers and Kevin Feige.

“There was one scene, it was in Infinity War, We wrote it, we didn’t shoot it. It was part and parcel of a whole thing where we realised we were picking up the characters too early in their arc before Thanos had gotten to them. It was a scene of basically Widow and Falcon and Cap in hiding post-Civil War and they’d just been through a big fight with criminals, and Cap was eating mashed potatoes, says Markus began.
“You’re bleeding into your mashed potatoes.” He looks at him like…yeah he is bleeding into his mashed potatoes. I remember Kevin [Feige] going “He’s bleeding into his mashed potatoes?! I don’t want to see that!” Yeah, maybe we went a little too…something.” Falcon says
.

There is a list of stories on some of the many scenes cut from both Infinity War and Endgame and these mashed potatoes story is just one of them.
