Mashed potatoes - Good for everyday and party!

Here are the tricks to make a very good mashed potato.


  • 800 gram almond potato (without peel)
  • 3 dl milk
  • 50 gram butter
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp salt

Mashed potatoes are excellent as an accompaniment to many dishes. This is an accessory that is made easily and simply and is popular for both young and old. This is a basic recipe for mashed potatoes, but how "silky soft" you make it and how much butter you want in it can vary slightly from everyday to party. Here I show some smart tips for making this accessory.

Step 1

TIP: Always use mashed potatoes. Potatoes such as almond potatoes are far better suited to mashed potatoes than boiled potatoes. This is on the bags of potatoes in the store. Peel the potatoes and place in a saucepan of cold water. I rinse the potatoes a little first. Boil the potatoes and cook until completely tender. This takes about 15 minutes. TIP: do not have salt in the water. This gives the mashed potatoes a slightly sticky consistency.

Step 2

A good tip instead of adding cold milk which makes the mashed potatoes much faster cold. Heat butter, milk and spices in a saucepan next to it (still wait with the salt).

Step 3

Step 4

Finish by seasoning with salt. It is also very good with a little finely grated parmesan. Decorate with a little parsley and serve. A simple and good accessory. Good luck.
