Who doesn't love mashed potatoes!!!. I could eat a whole bowl with some gravy in it. I love the mash they sell in KFC, yes I know its a probably came from a packet but still its sooooooooo good. Yummm, just thinking about it is making me salivate.
I love making mash to serve with sausages and sometimes with meat. I like it plain even though I jazz it up with spices sometimes . I tried adding pesto once but didn't like it much. I have read lots of recipes where they say you should boil the potatoes without peeling or use warm milk.So how do you like your mash?
Recipe : Mashed Potatoes
450g - 500 g potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
2 tbsp butter,
1/3 cup milk
Cook the potatoes in a pan of slightly salted water till cooked through. Drain and place back in the pan and mash with a potato masher or ricer while still warm. Add milk and butter , place over the lowest heat on the stove top and mix well with a wooden spoon or whisk till creamy. Add little more milk to get the write consistency. Add salt to taste.
Ps. Left over mash can be used to make fish cakes, for pie toppings etc.....
