You can make this two ways, creamy or chunky. I prefer the creamy kind though.


  1. Dice potatoes and place in a medium pot with cold water in it. Add bay leaf.
  2. Bring potatoes to a boil and cook for 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
  3. Drain potatoes, discard bay leaf, and place back in pot. Place over medium high heat and allow to dry out for a few minutes.
  4. For creamy potatoes, go ahead and place through a food mill, but for chunky potatoes add the rest of the ingredients and mash with a potato masher.

Good mashed potatoes. I'm not too sure that the bay leaf added much flavor, but it was an interesting way to make them. I used Italian seasoning for the herbs and really enjoyed these. Thanks Vchef607 for a nice recipe. Made for Chef Alphabet Soup Tag.
