NO FAIL MASHED POTATO


Print:
4

Ingredients

3 portion(s)

Mashed Potatoes

  • 500 grams potatoes chopped, peeling optional
  • 125 grams Milk
  • 25 grams Butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
5

Recipe's preparation

    PLEASE READ THE WHOLE RECIPE (INCLUDING NOTES AND TIPS) BEFORE STARTING :)
  1. NO BUTTERFLY OR STEAMER BASKET IS REQUIRED.

     Place chopped potatoes straight into bowl with milk.

     

  2. Cook for 15 minutes, 100 degrees, speed 1.  By this time the potatoes will be soft and mushy.  If they are not cooked enough you will end up with a lumpy mash.  CHECK THE POTATOES ARE COOKED THOROUGHLY AT THIS POINT.  If chopped too big, or not cooked enough, add a bit more cooking time.

     

  3. Add butter and salt and mash for 20-30 seconds MAXIMUM, (meaning, do not mash for longer than 30 seconds), speed 3 until desired consistency is achieved.  DO NOT OVERWHIP as you will end up with a claggy consistency.

     

    NOTE the "mashing time" will depend on the size you dice your potatoes and how well cooked/mushy they are.  I start with 20 seconds, check the consistency, and if still lumpy continue to 30 seconds.

Tip

This is a half quantity for 2-3 people. If you want a larger portion then double it to use 1000g potatoes and 250g milk, and cook for 20-25 minutes.

I use this method with all types of potatoes and have never failed.

For a creamier, more indulgent mash, use half cream, half milk, or all cream instead of milk.

Parmesan cheese and fresh chives can be added for extra flavour.

    Tina0s: The potato is almost mashed by the time the cooking is complete, the blades finish it off at the end. I've never found the need for 30 seconds, I just judge it through the lid hole to check the consistency.

    Maybe I missed something (re)reading the recipe but how do you mash the potatoes without the butterfly? Do you insert anything at all? Or do you just use the butterfly at the very end for mashing? Thanks

    Submitted by rainacakes on 20. October 2019 - 17:52.

    I swear by this recipe. I know it off by heart and it's the only way I make my mashed potato since Ive owned my Thermo. I like to mix it up, sometimes I cook in sour cream instead, sometimes I'll add crushed garlic or herbs and some cream cheese. Always turns out very tasty. I think it's super simple to follow and tough to mess up.

    Absolutely spot on.

    I made this recipe the other night, and it was spot on.

    I was concerned that the potatoes weren't 'mashing' as I thought speed 1 was a bit low, and was troubled to see chunks about 10mins into the recipe.

    However when the full 15min was up, the potatoes were perfectly mashed and cooked.

    I added butter and pepper and wizzed it for 20secs. Legit, fool proof.
