Well I put this off as long as possible. I have never prepared mashed potatoes before in my life. I haven't eaten mashed potatoes in, oh, likely more than twenty years. I don't care for mashed potatoes. I think this is the only mashed potato recipe in the book - and I get it.
This mashed potato recipe is very easy to prepare. Ingredients below, including some Parmesan cheese and a bit of nutmeg.
The recipe calls for the use of a double boiler. The potatoes are cooked, put into the top part of the double boiler over the melted butter and mashed. I used a potato ricer. Hot milk is added in small amounts as the potatoes are whisked; the Parmesan cheese is added, then more milk until the potatoes become fluffy, but before they become thin & runny. Add some salt & nutmeg and serve at once.
The final result below. Fluffy enough for you?
What I liked about this recipe:
Ho, hum. Gotta be one of the easiest recipes I've prepared.
I should also add that my 92-year-old mother-in-law liked the final result a lot - and she's prepared tons of mashed potatoes in her life.
What didn't I like about this recipe:
It's mashed potatoes.
Will I make it again?
Well, I will if I am asked, as I almost certainly will be.
