Mashed potatoes are sooo delicious when made fresh, and so easy. It's a pity people buy it from the box—that's like getting your pizza from a can. This recipe serves 3-4 people as a side dish, but I promise you there won't be any leftovers!

I'll tell you what you can do :

I've never quite understood why someone would buy dehydrated potato powder from a mix to make mashed potatoes. It's sooo easy and the taste is a million times better. Let's get started!

In a medium-sized pot, bring salted water to a boil. Cut your potatoes into equally sized pieces, about 1/2 inch thick (2cm). Toss them in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until you can easily break them with a fork. It takes about 15–20 minutes or so, depending on how big your pieces are.

Strain the excess water out and return to your pot with the stovetop on low. At this point you'll want to add the butter and as much salt as you need to the hot potatoes. Obviously if you use unsalted butter you'll have to add more. Mash together with a potato masher (or a fork) until even. Add the cream to give it a nicer consistency.

You're done! I like to add a little bit of cayenne pepper and green garlic as a garnish if it is in season. You can also alter this recipe with some roasted garlic, or by using different kinds of potatoes. Those purple ones at the market make a great mashed potato dish for your kids!

Now wasn't that easy? Don't let me catch you using mashed potato mix ever again!



Diet Tip

Mashed potatoes are actually very healthy and can be slimmed up easily by using milk instead of cream, and only a little bit of margarine or olive oil!

Best of luck,
