Recipe: Mashed Potato

12 Jul


4 big potatoes – steamed whole until really really mashable; just to be safe I steamed them for an hour or so.

250 ml of full cream milk

a teaspoon of salt – adjust to taste

1/2 teaspoon of pepper (I used freshly cracked blackpepper — use more if you’re using ground white pepper)

1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg. I prefer freshly grated nutmeg though.

(THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT BTW>>) 150 gr of unsalted butter. Feel free to add more.


Peel potatoes and mash them. Since I don’t have a potato masher, I used fork which worked ok with super hot potato.

Bring milk, salt, pepper, nutmeg into a simmer. Mix butter while whisking them lightly to prevent splitting. Add mashed potato, and stir vigorously with a whisk. Actually you can use any kind of mixing spatulas, however I found out that using a whisk gives you the best fluffy results. Bring the mixture to a boil or until the potato mixture gets slightly gluggy. Ready to be served hot. I am not a big cheese person (SHOCKING) and this mashed potato is creamy enough without any added cheese. However, feel free to mix in some mild cheese (cheddar, etc).
