Between2kitchens.com’s mashed potato recipe is made with Yukon Gold potatoes, full-fat milk, unsalted butter and a pinch of salt. (between2kitchens)
1.5 lb Yukon Gold potatoes or large fingerlings
½ cup full-fat milk
3 oz unsalted butter
Salt to taste
Peel, mash and season the potatoes for a perfect Thanksgiving side. (between2kitchens)
- Peel the potatoes and depending on size cut them in half or quarters. Place them in a pot with plenty of water and season with salt as you would for boiled potatoes.
- Bring the potatoes to a boil on high heat and reduce to a simmer. Cook them for about 20-30 minutes until they are tender but not falling apart.
- Meanwhile, combine the milk and the butter in a small pot, add a pinch of salt and heat on a low flame. You want the butter completely melted into the milk. Time this step well with the boiling of potatoes as the milk/butter mixture should still be warm when the potatoes are cooked.
- Strain the cooked potatoes into a colander. Press or turn them in a potato masher or mouli grater into a pot. Preferably, use the same pot you cooked the potatoes in to keep the potatoes warm.
- Add the warm milk and butter mixture to the potatoes and stir well with a wooden spoon. Taste the mashed potato and add salt if required.
- To make the mashed potatoes extra creamy and lump-free, pass them through a sieve (mesh strainer) using a firm spatula. Garnish the mashed potatoes with your favorite toppings, such as garlic butter and herbs.
