Posted by Angelica on July - 21 - 2011 with 0 Comment

Ingredients

  • 5 large potatoesMashed Potato with Chives
  • ½ teaspoon of diluted salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 5 dices of good butter
  • 5 tablespoon of milk
  • ½ cup of goat cheese
  • A handful of chives – chopped finely

 

Directions

  1. Boil potatoes in a closed lid saucepan for about 3mins, reduce heat & simmer for another 15mins. Test with a fork by piercing through the potatoes to see if it’s cooked.
  2. Drain water from potatoes till it’s dry; place them in a large bowl. In a small bowl, melt butter until browned and add this to the potatoes.
  3. Add in pepper, salt, & milk and start mashing (top, down motion) with a big fork.
  4. When satisfied with the texture of the mash, add in goat cheese & chives, stirring gently for consistency.
  5. Use shrink wraps to cover the bowl until ready to serve. This will retain the moisture for a long time.

 

 

Tips for great textured mashed potatoes:

  1. Mashing should always be with a fork, top, down motion. Avoid blending or food processor as you’ll end up with a gluey texture.
  2. For great texture, the boiled potatoes need to be dried out before mashing. One way for this is to let the drained potatoes sit in the dry pan till all the water is absolutely absorbed in heat.

 

Tips for leftover mashed potatoes:

  1. Leftover mashed potatoes can be made into “potato patties” by coating them with bread crumbs and frying in a non-stick pan with butter.
  2. Extra mashed potatoes can also be used in stews/soups as a thickening agent.
