Cook Mashed Potatoes in 3 Ways

Learn three new takes that elevate your classic mashed potato recipe.

 

Mashed potatoes are a reliable crowd-pleaser but that doesn't mean you can't add new flavor profiles to it. Try one of these three variations on a classic:

 

 

Herbs and Bacon

Adding bacon to mashed potatoes is a no-brainer!

 

 

400 grams potatoes, cut in chunks
¼ cup bacon strips, cooked to a crisp
1 onion, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh mixed herbs, chopped
salt and pepper to taste


1 Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain and keep warm.


2 Using a whisk, gently crush the potatoes but do not mash. Mix well.
 

3 To the cooked bacon, add onions, then cooked potatoes. Add olive oil, herbs, and seasoning. Mix with potatoes.

 

 

Pommes Duchesse

A French variation of mashed potato.

 

1 kilo potatoes, cut in chunks
2 tablespoons butter
2 egg yolks
salt and pepper to taste

 

 

1 Peel, boil, and mash the potatoes.
 

2 Mix in butter, then the egg yolks. Season with salt and pepper.
 

3 Using a pastry bag, pipe mixture onto a lightly greased baking pan.
 

4 Bake at 400ºF (200ºC) until lightly browned.

 

 

 

Mashed Potato with Garlic and Chives

Herbs add more dimension to this classic comfort food.

 

 

1 kilo potatoes, peeled
2 cloves garlic, peeled
½ teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons warm milk
8 tablespoons soft
butter
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chives, chopped



1 Place potatoes in a pot, with enough water to cover the potatoes. Mix in salt and garlic, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes. Drain.
 

 

2 Put the potatoes and boiled garlic cloves through a potato ricer and into a bowl.
 

 

3 Stir in milk and butter using a whisk. (Don’t overwhisk or the potatoes will become
gluey.) Season with salt and pepper.
 

 

4 Stir in chives and serve.
