Even though spring is just around the corner, it can still feel like winter on some days. As long as we are talking about winter comfort food, lets talk potatoes. Mashed potatoes are so simple yet filling and comforting. This is a basic recipe-you can add a ½ cup of sour cream into the mash and top with chives or parsley to make it a little richer. I’ve even known people who add a little blue cheese to make it totally decadent.
½ stick butter
½ cup milk heated
salt & pepper
Place potatoes in a saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat slightly and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and return to saucepan.
Transfer to a large bowl or an electric mixer bowl and mash. Add butter and milk and beat until smooth.
Re-heating tip: when heating up the leftover mashed potatoes the next day, add a little milk (2-3 tbsp) and mix it in to avoid dry potatoes.
