Creamy Mashed Potatoes

This dish is so simple in both preparation and in the ingredients, but is so rich in taste. I love this recipe because it is so versatile it goes with almost any meal, and is great in winter or summer.

Because it is so simple, it’s so easy to vamp up the flavor. Some of my favorites are, grated cheddar cheese and chives, which is amazing with steak, or kofta. Some dill and sautéed onions are perfect with grilled fish. Be creative and find your perfect flavor.


This recipe will make enough for about 4 servings.

- 1 kg Potatoes
- 1 cup skim milk
- 2 Tbsp Butter
- salt and pepper to taste


Peel and boil the potatoes, with a pinch of salt.

When the potatoes are very soft and break apart when poked with a fork, drain and put back in the pot.

Reduce the heat to the lowest setting possible, and add in the butter and the milk. Using a potato masher, mashed the bad boys until they are as smooth as you like them. If you are not serving then immediately, I suggest adding more milk, since they tend to thicken.


How do you like your mashed potatoes?
