The best tricks to the best mashed potatoes

  • Heavy cream or buttermilk are my go-to ingredients for the best mashed potatoes. Milk, even whole milk lacks flavor for these types of recipes. If calories are an issue I say use buttermilk but if you want full on flavor pour the heavy cream in. The measurements are the same but in the recipe below I will be using heavy cream.
  • A fresh herb is great with potatoes. Any of your favorite herb with do but I am a big fan of rosemary for this recipe. You can also opt of chives or parsley.

Making these red skin mashed potatoes easily, easy steps

  1. First, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Carefully place the washed red potatoes in and cover for 20 minutes or until a butter knife easily slides into the potatoes.
  2. Now, while the potatoes are cooking take the heavy cream and butter and add it to the stove top on a low heat. There should be no steam. Simply a gentle heat to melt the butter over time and warm up the heavy cream.
  3. When the red potatoes are done cooking drain them. Next, place in a large bowl. Using a potato masher, mash them just a little.
  4. Then, add in the melted butter and heavy cream. Continue mashing the potatoes until the majority of the cream and butter are absorbed.
  5. Lastly, fold in the herbs along with salt and pepper to taste.
