Good news ! Mashed potatoes don’t have to be difficult or a hassle to make! For some reason I used to think that you had to boil potatoes whole in order to make mashed potatoes, how silly I was! Whether you peel the skins off or not, if you just cut them into decent-sized pieces, they cook much quicker and are so much easier to mash!
Once mashed, there are so many things you can do with these potatoes! Just check out how delicious they can be in my recipe for Shepherd’s Pie! Make sure to use plenty of garlic!
What you Need:
-4 regular sized potatoes
-2-3 tbs butter
-1 cup milk (whole is best)
-2 cloves garlic, crushed or finely chopped
-salt and pepper to taste
What to Do:
Cut potatoes into large chunks and boil in salted water until very soft. Drain and place back into the pot. Add the garlic and some of the butter and milk while mashing, adding more butter and milk until the potatoes become fluffy. Add salt and pepper to taste.
