“Ordinary mashed potatoes are made by using a potato masher on boiled potatoes. However, using an electric mixer after mashing makes the potatoes super delicious.”

Directions

  1. Fill a medium size saucepan half full of water, and add a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil. Add potatoes to pot; the water should cover the potatoes. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until potatoes are easily pierced by a fork. Drain.
  2. Transfer potatoes to a large mixing bowl. Add butter or margarine and milk, and mash with a potato masher. When well mashed, whip for a minute or two with an electric mixer set on medium speed.

Mashed potatoes are classic comfort food and while most every cook has their own "take" or "secret" to making them extra special there's no disputing the basic formula which is what this recipe gives you: potatoes, butter, and milk in it's own proportions. I generally use more butter and more warm milk. I also add in some salt and pepper along with a bit of garlic powder. I always use an electric mixer to "mash" my potatoes whether its my kitchen aid stand mixer for large batches or my hand held for small batches. The potatoes come out perfectly "whipped" everytime!

I have always used an electric mixer to "mash" my potatoes so I agree it's an excellent tip. Another little tip is to heat your milk in the microwave before adding it to the potatoes. If you add cold milk it sort of cools off your potatoes, and hot potatoes are better! For some reason it also makes them creamier AND taste better. TRY IT!!

Mmmm, just like Mom used to make! I used 5 Tbs of butter, and skim milk, because that's all I had. After straining the water out, I put the taters in the hot pot back on the burner, on low, and let the excess water steam away for a minute. Emeril suggests this for avoiding goopy or runny taters. I used a hand electric mixer right in the pot, just like Mom. (Make sure your nonstick can handle it--mine can, Cooks Essentials is tough.) Use a low speed to avoid overbeating. Add milk gradually until you get the consistency you want. I like mine thicker, with a few little pieces to letcha know they're REAL. If you like a more perfectly whipped version, a stand mixer would work better. Just keep an eye on it so you stop it at the right time. Do NOT substitute a food processor--wrong tool for the job. You'll get a glutinous glob. If you use a stand mixer, preheat the bowl in hot water to keep your taters hot. Good idea to warm up your serving bowl, too, if you're using one. In addition to the add-ins other reviewers have mentioned, try whipping in sour cream, or fold in grated cheese, crumbled crisp bacon, sprinkle chives on it, or anything you top taters with. I like just fresh ground salt, pepper, and butter. Good quality taters have a wonderful taste without needing to be hidden behind strong flavors. And, don't let highly seasoned spuds upstage your main dish. Thanks, Sandra, for the recipe/prep tips!
