Our Favorite Homemade Mashed Potatoes

Our favorite way to make mashed potatoes. Think of this as an everyday recipe – one that you can adapt based on what you have in the fridge. 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 stock (chicken or vegetable). Or, replace some milk with heavy cream or sour 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.
