World Class Mashed Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds fingerling potatoes
  • 14 oz. butter
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • ¾ oz. salt

Directions

  1. Wash the potatoes with the skins on. Leaving them whole, place them in a large pot and fill cold water, covering them over with 1 inch of water. Add salt and cook the potatoes for 25 to 30 minutes until fork tender.
  2. Drain and quickly peel the potatoes while they are still warm. Once they are peeled, pass them through a ricer. Add half of the butter and stir until completely incorporated. Using a fine metal sifter, pass the potato puree once more to create a smooth texture.
  3. Place the potato puree in a pot and add the remaining butter. Over low heat, add the milk slowly, continuously mixing. Finish, by adding a pinch of salt for flavor.
  4. To serve, simply place on a plate as a side dish with your favorite meat and vegetables.
