The best thing to compliment literally anything. Potatoes are so versatile, it has the ability to be used in savoury and sweet cooking. When I made the croquette recipe this was the mash potato recipe I used to form the fried goodies.
I have always loved a nice blend of chunky and creamy mash potatoes. Never liked them too smooth or full of lumps. Prepare this side dish whenever you know you are having food that needs carbs. Yes this might be carb overload, but if there is anything to have on a cheat day its with this bowl of deliciousness.
So take a BITE and keep piling your plate with MORE and MORE. You won’t regret it with this recipe.
Instructions serves 10
- Set up a large pot of water on the stove top and bring to a boil.
- Make sure to clean and wash your potatoes throughly until there is very little brown water when the potatoes are in a bowl water.
- Once cleaned, cut into equal parts (as best as you can).
- In a large pot with boiling water add your potatoes (be careful and make sure you have a slotted spoon, dumb me did not have one at the time of filming). Leave it to cook for about 15-20 minutes or until its half cooked mushy.
- While the potatoes cook, crush your garlic and finely mince to fold through the mash potatoes later and cut up your spring onions for garnish .
- Once potatoes have cooked, drain them into another bowl on the sink and while they are draining make sure to have cold water running through the tap to halt it from overcooking.
- Once potatoes have been drained, mash it up! Then add your butter and mix it around. Microwave your milk and then add to the bowl of potatoes and continue to mix until well incorporated.
- Then add your crushed garlic through it and continue to mash until well incorporated.
- Then once mashed to a nice consistency (creamy and chunky), leave it in the bot and garnish with spring onions.
- Now pair the mash potatoes with any protein, vegetables. Turn it into a croquette or enjoy it on its own. Dig in!
