Mashed Potatoes

Mashed Potatoes

By now you know that September and May are busy months for us at Blogging Marathon.

This month round we are blogging International dishes to make things a little difficult we are doing it in an alphabetical order.

 So I am making my dishes for the marathon, for one such dish I made mashed potatoes as a side. I did not expect the girls to go crazy over the mashed potatoes so I made very little… okay, that is an excuse, I ran out of potatoes , the girls went crazy over the mashed potatoes of course they loved the main dish, that was expected !

Since then I make the mashed potatoes regularly!  Here is what I do.

For heavy cream I use the cream that is on the milk after heating it.

Mashed Potatoes

Recipe Source: Simply Recipes
Serves: 4
  • 4 med. potatoes, boiled
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  • Salt and Pepper
  • a few leaves of parsley( optional)
Mashed Potatoes

  • Peel and mash the potatoes. I prefer to grate them.
  •  Add salt.
  •  Warm the butter and cream together in a pan on the stove.
  •  Add cream and melted butter to the potatoes.  
  •  Use a strong spoon to beat.
  •  Add milk to achieve the consistency you desire. (Over-beating will make the potatoes sticky.)
  • Add chopped parsley if using, salt and pepper to taste.
