Simple Mashed Potatoes


Recipe Level: Basic | Recipe Speed: Quick | Season: Fall, Winter | Type:  Side - Starchy | Diet: Vegetarian - GF


From your basket:

  • 5-6 peeled and chopped red potatoes (or the full bag in your share)

  • 2 Tbsp Ploughgate Creamery butter (from last week’s basket)

  • ½ cup milk or cream

From the pantry:

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp pepper



1.     Fill a large pot of cold water, and add chopped potatoes.

2.     Bring to a boil and cook potatoes until soft, about 15-20 minutes. (Bringing water and potatoes to a boil together helps the potatoes cook evenly!)

3.     Once potatoes are soft, drain and begin to mash. Add butter and cream, continue to stir using a fork or potatoes masher. For extra fluffy and smooth potatoes, consider combining with a hand mixer.

4.     Serve as a side or under your Parsnip and Carrot Chili!
