Mashed potatoes are an easy potatoes recipe to make. It does help however if you follow a few tips to make the best-mashed potatoes. When you are working with just potatoes, butter, salt, and cream, it's the little things that matter. To start you want to use Yukon Gold potatoes. Yukon Gold are the best potatoes for mashed potatoes recipes. You want to boil your potatoes in large pieces. If you cut the potatoes small, it gives the water more of an opportunity to make its way inside the potatoes. More water in the potatoes means more liquid and less flavor in the mashed potatoes. If you really want to protect the potatoes from water, boil the potatoes with their skins on and remove the skins after the potatoes have cooked. Keep your potatoes hot. If you want a creamy taste and texture in your mashed potatoes, you can’t let the potatoes cool before you mash them, you want to start to mash the potatoes as soon as possible after they have been boiled and drained.

Add in the fat first. You need to add in some fat to the potatoes recipe, before adding in any liquid. This makes sure the texture of the potatoes remains firm before being softened by all the cream. Taste the potatoes constantly. If you only salt the potatoes once in this process, then your mashed potatoes recipe will suffer. You want to reaccess the recipe after adding each ingredient, making sure the seasoning hasn’t gotten too diluted. You are going to need to use plenty of salt, as starchy and fatty foods need a lot of salt to taste their best. Don’t add all the liquid at once. Your potatoes recipe won’t be able to absorb all of the liquid at once. You want to add the liquid in smaller pours as it helps the potatoes soak up all the creaminess, which will help you to avoid liquid mashed potatoes.
