Mashed potaoes

Always use dried non-fat milk in mashed potatoes.  Cheapest protein on the planet.  Lots of calcium.  A little liquid milk lets you make a good consistency.

"Dried non-fat milk"

I find that cream, butter salt and pepper works fine thanks!

Re: Mashed potaoes

Horseradish mash goes brilliantly with roast beef too!

roast garlic mash with lamb is also very nice...

Re: Mashed potaoes

Dried non-fat milk  shocked

Cream and butter for me too, and a little salt, white pepper and nutmeg  thumbsup

And now in spring, a bit of finly chopped or pureed wild garlic /ramps...

Or for autumn either finly grated chestnuts or pumpkin seed oil and chopped pumpkin seeds... lovely with venison

Have to try the horseradish one next Dave! Sounds really nice exclaim

Re: Mashed potaoes

Good idea Thomas but to me it sounds a bit grim !

I usually put a little fresh milk and butter in the mashed potato with a little pepper and salt. sometimes I use cream and butter instead.

I do sometimes put other veg in with the potates to mash... things like parsnips.
or. sometimes I stir in some freshly cooked peas / sweetcorn.

Re: Mashed potaoes

I like the real stuff, too. Real milk and butter. I rather eat it less often than using artificial powders of any kind....  wink

Re: Mashed potaoes

cream and butter with some parmesan. Or chopped fresh chives do it for me, too. 
I'm sure you're a very nice man, Thomas.  But I hear that POW's in countries with less than stellar human rights records are forced to eat their mash with powdered milk.
