  • Summary

    Recipe video above. This is my essential mashed potato recipe I make 362 days of the year*. It's a must-have at holiday gatherings and Sunday Suppers, and it's the mash you've seen smothered by sauces and gravies in hundreds of recipes on my website! Easy, creamy, buttery, rich but not insanely so (we have Paris Mash for that). Serve with everything. (*The other 3 days of the year I make Paris Mash, KFC Potato and Gravy, and Creamy Cauliflower Mash)

    Ingredients

    • 1.5 kg / 3 lb potatoes, peeled and cut into 2.5cm/1” cubes ((Preferably Sebago, Russet or Maris Piper, Note 1))
    • 1 tbsp salt ((for cooking))
    • 60g / 4 tbsp unsalted butter (, chopped)
    • 1/3 cup milk (, preferably warmed)
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • Extra melted butter
    • Chives or parsley (, chopped)
