Ingredients

  • 800 g Potatoes Peeled and cut into chunks
  • 50 g Butter
  • 120 ml Milk
  • Salt To taste
  • Black Pepper To taste
  • Chives Optional

Instructions

  • Begin by peeling the potatoes and cutting them into uniformly sized chunks. This ensures even cooking.
  • Place the potato chunks in a large pot and cover them with cold water. Add a pinch of salt.
  • On medium-high heat, bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and allow the potatoes to simmer for approximately 15-20 minutes or until they become fork-tender.
  • Once the potatoes have cooked, thoroughly drain them in a colander.
  • Return the drained potatoes to the pot and let them rest for a minute or two to enable excess moisture to evaporate.
  • Employ a potato masher or a fork to commence mashing the potatoes until they attain a coarse texture.
  • In a small saucepan, gently melt the butter over low heat. Introduce the milk to the melted butter and warm the mixture without allowing it to reach a boil.
  • Gradually pour the warm milk and butter mixture into the mashed potatoes while stirring and mashing, until you attain the desired creamy consistency.
  • Season the mashed potatoes with salt and pepper to your taste. Ensure even distribution of the seasoning.
  • If desired, embellish the mashed potatoes with finely chopped fresh chives or parsley.
  • Serve the mashed potatoes hot as a side dish. They complement a variety of main courses.
