Homemade Mashed Potatoes

Finally, the 10 lbs of potatoes were consumed and we now have the 4th recipe derived out of it. I did not imagine that a $2 bag of potatoes would go such a long way. We were able to make the homemade potato chips, crispy French fries, potato and leek soup, and here we are with our homemade mashed potatoes.

Everyone knows what homemade mashed potatoes are. I think that a formal description is not necessary – but did you know that Mashed Potato is also a dance popularized during 1962 to the mid 60’s? I was not born yet during that time but I heard that the moves are pretty cool.

This homemade mashed potatoes recipe resembles the ones that you find in restaurants and top food joints. The ingredients are common, the procedure is simple, and the taste is awesome. Try it yourself – oh, and make sure you top it with KFC Style gravy for a double awesome experience.

    hello po. magcocontribute lang po ako kasi wala akong mechanical stirrer so manual ko syang ginawa. Since it’s hard to mix it thoroughly, adding milk is a good idea (as you’ve said). But if incase naparami yung milk na nilagay nyo (because i didn’t exactly use 2lbs potatoes), just reheat it again at low temp and stir. (kasi i’m actually using coal so maintaining a consistent heat temperature is difficult).

    thanks again.
