Mashed Potato recipe

Mashed potato is a classic way to cook potato. Try this easy recipe.

Ingredients:

500g potatoes, floury, like Maris Piper
50g butter
25ml cream
Salt and black pepper

Method of Preparation:

  1. Chop the potatoes in half and place them in a pan of cold water. Bring the water to the boil and cook the potatoes until tender, around 15-20 minutes.

  2. Drain the potatoes and leave them in the colander for the steam to evaporate for around five minutes.

  3. Place the potatoes into a large bowl and mash them with a potato masher or a potato ricer. Donít use anything electrical as the texture of the potatoes will be ruined.

  4. Once smooth, mash in the butter and the cream.

  5. Season the mash well with salt and pepper.

Why not try serving the mash with a baked gammon joint, fresh vegetables and a simple parsley sauce. This recipe yields four servings.
