Only Live Once-Mashed Potatoes

Got to love mashed potatoes, the ultimate Comfort Food. When I'm aiming at mashed spuds, I will usually opt for Yukon Gold potato, as opposed the other varieties.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil potatoes in salted water until tender (though there is an argument to be made for steaming peas and/or carrots above them so as to sweat some added juices into the mix).
  2. Add butter, onions and sour cream and mash very vigorously (more than you normally would!).
  3. Depending what you are "complementing" (ie beef, pork, chicken etc) you could add some stock and reduce the fats.
  4. If serving with no gravy, add a bit to the onion; if the gravy is thicker, reduce onion, but remember to carry on "mashing" for a minute or three longer than you believe you must -- .
