Creamy mashed potato

Serves Icon
Time 50 Minutes
  • 4 large potatoes (unpeeled) such as Desiree (approximately 1 kg)
  • 150g of unsalted butter
  • 200ml of full cream milk
  • Sea Salt

Requires: potato ricer or tamis (drum sieve)

How to Make It
Step 1

Wash the potatoes and place in a large pot (unpeeled). Cover with cold water and bring to the boil. Add a pinch of salt and cook, uncovered, until the potatoes are tender all the way through (approximately 30-40 minutes after the water has come to a boil). Drain the potatoes. Prepare a medium sized bowl to place the mashed potatoes.

Step 2

While the potatoes are still hot, cut them in half and place cut side down into a potato ricer. Remove the potato skins each time you place a piece of potato into the potato ricer. Alternatively remove the potato skins while hot and mash using a tamis (drum sieve) into a bowl. Pass the mashed potatoes through the potato ricer or tamis a second time to achieve a smooth mash.

Step 3

Transfer the mashed potatoes back to the pot. Place the milk in a small saucepan over low-medium heat and bring to the boil. Reduce the saucepan with milk to low heat and simmer. Place the pot with mashed potatoes on low heat. Stir in the butter until well combined, then add the milk, 50ml at a time, until combined. Season with sea salt to taste.

Step 4

Serve immediately with your favourite main course. We recommend Braised lamb shanks with mushroom ragù and Slow cooked beef short ribs in red wine sauce – buon appetito.
