Perfect Mashed Potato
    • Prep: 0:20

  • Serves:


    • 1kg potatoes, peeled and washed (King Edward, Desirée or Maris Piper)
    • 110g butter
    • 2 tbsp whole milk
    • 2 tbsp double cream
    • Pinch nutmeg
    • Sea salt and black pepper


Cut the potatoes into even sized pieces and place in a large pan of salted water. Bring to the boil and simmer until tender, around 20 – 25 minutes. Drain the potatoes well, return them to the saucepan and shake over a low heat for 30 seconds to remove some of the steam.

Heat the butter, milk and cream in a separate saucepan until the butter is just melted. Mash the potatoes with a masher and add the butter mixture, mixing in well until creamy and fluffy.

Season to taste with nutmeg, sea salt and black pepper.
