I’m not sure mashed potato could really ever be described as stylish?
But I think this makes headway toward that description…
I thought I’d share how I serve mashed potato! Brace yourselves, blogging doesn’t get any more exciting than this 😉
Prepare your potatoes in the usual way
Mash as you normally would – I use a potato ricer as this eliminates lumps
Stir in some butter, and/or herbs, onion, black pepper – however you fancy seasoning your mash!
Fill a piping bag with the mash (or use a freezer/food bag with the end cut off if you don’t have an icing kit to hand)
Pipe the mash into a swirl – similar to how you’d pipe the top of a cupcake
Bake for 10 minutes in a moderate oven
Or, and this is the beauty of this method, pipe onto a baking tray and freeze. This makes fantastic individual portions, that can be removed from the tray and bagged up to be baked at a later date. A great way to reduce waste by using up extra potatoes, as well as having mash potato to hand in an emergency!
