Classic mash potato recipe!

The first amazing mash potato recipe is the classic mash. Creamy, plain, delicious mash potatoes with such an easy recipe!

Here is the ingredients to make these delicious potato’s!
– 3 potatoes peeled
– 50ml of double cream

You want to start off by peeling your potato’s and then boil them in lightly salted water, boil them for about 10 minutes until a fork can slide through them easily. Once they are all soft, drain all the water and put them in a bowl and then slightly mash them until they are a little mashed. Put them in a pot and add in the milk, the butter and the double cream, and then put it on a low heat while you mix and mash it all together, until it is all soft and creamy.

Once it is soft and creamy, pop it on the side of a plate, and chop up some parsley, and sprinkle on top for a garnish. Serve, and your classic extra creamy mash potato is ready to serve!
