Posted 14 June 2014 - 04:25 AM
2 pounds of potatoes
½ to ¾ cup of milk
Salt and pepper (to your taste)
2-6 tablespoons of butter
You can make mashed potatoes in just a few easy steps.
Step 1: Wash the potatoes
Step 2: Peel the potatoes
Step 3: Cut the potatoes into 1 ½ inch chunks
Step 4: Put the potatoes in sauce pan and cover with water (adding 1 teaspoon of salt to the water is optional)
Step 5: Bring to a boil. Turn down to simmer. Simmer 20 minutes
Step 6: Drain the potatoes
Step 7: Add milk, butter, salt and pepper
Step 8: Start mashing!
Keep mashing until the potatoes are creamy and lump free. You can garnish your mashed potatoes with some chopped parsley if you like.
The Equipment you’ll need:
Sauce pan with a cover
Tempted as you might be to try using a blender or a food processor to mash potatoes…DON’T! Believe me, years ago I tried that. You end up with a gluey, uneatable, awful mess. If you are mashing for a crowd, an electric hand mixer will work beautifully!
