How to make the best mashed potatoes of your life
You want an insider’s tip for the ultimate creamy mashed potatoes? Well, we’ll let you in on our secret: potatoes cooked directly in milk and cream. When prepared this way, the potatoes are able to retain all of the flavor instead of it being spilled away with the cooking water. To this we add a little salt, nutmeg and of course plenty of butter.
How many calories are in mashed potatoes?
100 g of potatoes have about 70 kcal – additionally, of course, it depends on what you do with the mashed potatoes: Do you refine them after serving with even more butter and cream or do you use only vegetable broth for cooking? We’ll stick with cream and butter. 😋
