Ingredients

2 potatoes, Russet or Idaho type 500 g
1 tbsp butter, unsalted 14 g
1/3 cup milk, partly skimmed, 2% 85 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

A food mill or a potato ricer will be very useful to purée the potatoes. A food processor cannot give the proper texture.

Method

  1. Prepare the potatoes, leaving the skin on. Boil or steam until very tender, about 20 -25 min. Drain well and peel.
  2. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, pour in the milk with butter and microwave on medium-high for a couple tens of seconds until hot.
  3. Pass the potatoes through a food mill, then put the purée back into the pot used to cook the potatoes. Pour in the butter-milk mixture. Add more or less milk depending on how creamy you like your purée. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then blend well using a spatula.
  4. Reheat and serve warm.
