Creamiest Mashed Potatoes EVER!
Updated: Aug 27, 2019
One of the things I love most about cooking is that we all have different tastes but we can usually tailor a recipe to our own liking. It's what makes us unique. If we all had the same tastebuds, food creativity might come to a halt all together.
Our difference also make life interesting, especially in relationships. I like mayonnaise but the hubs likes miracle whip. I put celery and carrots in my tuna salad, he eats it plain out of the can. I love whole milk, he loves skim milk. I love homemade macaroni and cheese, the hubs thinks Kraft boxed macaroni and cheese is like gold. 🙄
Yes, I know, these are some SERIOUS differences of opinions! Yet, we make our relationship work, even in the kitchen!
However, despite our difference of opinion on a few recipes, there's one dish that we 100% agree on. One dish that must be absolutely clump-free, skin-free and smooth as can be: Mashed Potatoes.
I learned the recipe from from my Mother and it's pretty basic. She prefers creamy mashed potatoes too and uses a hand mixer to achieve that smooth consistency. Maybe she's just better at using the hand mixer than I am but I could never get my potatoes as smooth as hers. Until...I discovered the emulsifier. The first time I used mine, I felt it must be a gift from the mashed potato Gods. My mashed potatoes were smooth like butter. Thick and creamy like pudding. They were incredible and changed our mashed potato recipe forever.
I personally like the KitchenAid KHB2351CU 3-Speed Hand Blender because it comes with the following attachments/features:
The Removable 8" Blending Arm with Fixed Blade locks into the motor body for easy operation. The stainless steel S-shaped fixed blade quickly blends ingredients for smoothies, milk shakes, soups or baby food.
The soft grip handle offers a non-slip and comfortable grip when continuously blending ingredients.
The Whisk Attachment can be used to quickly whip egg whites to fluffy peaks and cream or emulsify vinaigrettes and mayonnaise.
2 1/2-Cup BPA-Free Chopper Attachment with lid locks is ideal for chopping herbs, nuts, cheese, cooked meat and more right in the convenient chopper bowl.
The 3-Cup BPA-Free Blending Jar with Lid to serve or store for later, top-rack dishwasher safe, 5 feet Power Cord included.
Enough about the emulsifier, let's get to the recipe. Like I said above, it's really a very simple recipe. Only a few ingredients and takes maybe 30 minutes tops to make. Are you ready to experience the BEST, creamiest mashed potatoes of your life? Let's GO!
Hope you enjoyed this recipe as much as we do! Comment below with any questions or any suggestions you may have and as always, LIVE LIFE LOGICALLY!
