Our Favorite Homemade Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Think of this as an everyday recipe – one that you can adapt based on what you have in the fridge. Nothing is overly decadent, although, you could easily turn them into something that is. We call for 1 cup of liquid to be added to the potatoes. At home, we usually use equal parts milk to chicken stock. You could use all milk or all chicken stock. Or, replace some milk with heavy cream for extra decadent potatoes. A tablespoon or two of cream cheese wouldn’t hurt, either. The trick to great mashed potatoes is seasoning up front. Adding a hearty amount of salt to the water seasons the potatoes while they cook – we use at least 1 tablespoon. This is similar to salting pasta water.
