You may wonder why even bother to make Homemade Mash. I know that you can get any number of store bought mash, but, I always think that mine is the best. It really does not take very long and tastes homemade, freshly whipped, and not out of the microwave.
- 2 medium or one large baking potato
- 1/3 cup milk
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- Gather all ingredients before starting recipe.
- Peel and cube 2 medium or one large baking potato so that they are all the same size.
- Place potatoes in a deep medium sized sauce pan, cover with water and rinse, then add enough water to cover by an inch, season with kosher salt.
- Bring water to a boil, then reduce heat to medium high, and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until a fork easily pierces the potato.
- Drain the water, add the butter, and beat on high with a hand mixer until the potatoes have been broken up.
- Add milk, a little at a time, and continue to whip until you get a smooth fluffy mixture. Taste for season and add more salt if needed.
- Transfer to serving dish, top with a dollop of butter and a few chopped flakes of parsley.
