Best ever mashed potato - MAKE FIRST

Peel and chop potatoes into 2.5cm/1" cubes. Add to a pot and cover with cold water, with a pinch of salt added. Cover with a lid and bring to the boil, cooking for 15 minutes until soft. Drain well. Keep your dry pot for the next step.


For the softest potatoes, put a handful at a time into a fine metal sieve. Using a soft spatula or the back of a spoon, pass the potatoes through the sieve and into the dry pot. Continue until all potatoes have been mashed through the sieve. Turn the stove on low and stir potatoes for 1 minute, to evaporate the excess water


Add a few cubes of butter and a dash of milk. Stir until incorporated. Repeat until all butter and milk is used. Season to taste with salt and pepper. When your steak is resting, turn the stove on low and stir to reheat.
