Simple Mash Potato – Homestyle

  1. Place your potatoes in a pot of salted water and bring to the boil. Reduce to a high simmer and cook until fork tender. (15 – 20 mins)
  2. Drain the potatoes then pop them back in the empty pot on the heat. Jiggle the pot so the potatoes roll around a bit and the last of the liquid is steamed out of the potatoes then set aside to cool.
  3. Once cool enough to handle, remove the skin (optional – if you remove make sure to save for frying up later) and pop the potato flesh back into the same pot over low heat.
  4. Add the milk and butter and bring the milk to a simmer. Once simmering, remove the pot from the heat, season and mash.

TIP: This recipe can be made vegan by swapping our the dairy products for your preferred alternatives!
