Potato needs more butter

The secret to an exceptional mash potato is the amount of butter in it. This is what I learnt and used before and so far the best mash potato that i have tasted.

  • 500g potato
  • 150ml milk
  • 150ml cream
  • 250g butter
  • salt and pepper

Peel and cut the potatoes up into pieces

Steam the potatoes until they are soft and cooked through

Leave the cooked potatoes in the oven at 120°C for 10 minutes to dry it out a little

Rice the potatoes and pass them through a fine drum sieve

Mix the puree in a pan at low heat and slowly incorporate the cream and milk at room temperature

Slowly add the cubed butter into the puree while mixing until the whole puree emulsifies

Season with salt and pepper at the end
