Mashed Potatoes

Who wants store-bought mashed potatoes when you can have the best comfort food around? Mashed Potatoes are a tradition because they’re simple, but making them yourself takes it up another notch. With just five ingredients and some time spent boiling or mashing those 8+10 medium potatoes, your family will love this easy recipe for perfect homemade spuds every single day of winter!

You might think that mashed potatoes are a distinctly British culinary invention. You’d be wrong! In Greece, we love mashed potatoes too! I always want mash with my soutzoukakia, for example - it’s the absolute go-to side dish for this! We’d also have it with burger patties, or chicken. Liquid yet lumpy mash is enough to turn anyone off - but done right, this simple tasty side dish is the perfect accompaniment to so many dishes!

My mashed potatoes method is simple - adding milk and butter is a no-brainer to make this indulgent in all the right ways making for a light, delicate, tasty mash. This recipe makes a large quantity, but feel free to half it, the proportions will still work.
