Mashed Potatoes

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 light, delicate, tasty mash. This recipe makes a large quantity, but feel free to half it, the proportions will still work.

  • For serving

You can decrease the calories by substituting double cream with milk, for which you’ll need 240ml milk in total.

Avoid using a hand blender to mash the potatoes because you will end up with a gummy texture.
