Chunky Mashed Potatoes Recipe

chunky mashed potatoes

Husband and I usually cook chunky mashed potatoes for breakfast during some lazy weekends. One of our favorite potato recipes for breakfast is this chunky mashed potatoes with baked beans.

Potatoes have been one of my favorite ingredients when cooking for kids and family. Though rice is our major carbohydrate intake of every day’s meal, I find I love potatoes more than rice. Not only that I like the taste and texture of the potatoes, but it is also easy to prepare and has wholesome goodness in it.

In order to make the breakfast more appealing to the kids, hubby would help to decorate the plate to make faces, with chunky mashed potatoes, shredded vegetables, sausage, and fruits. They usually polish off the plate very fast and will ask for second serving with other facial expressions.

Chunky Mashed Potatoes

Serves: 4
Prepare time: 30 minutes

Russet or Yukon Potatoes – 4 medium size
Butter – 3 to 4 tablespoon
Milk (optional)
Black Paper – freshly ground
Salt – 1 teaspoon for unsalted butter, a pinch for salted butter
Chives – chopped or sliced

chunky mashed potatoes with butter

1. Wash and peel off the skin of the potatoes and cut them into a cube.
2. Put the potatoes in a pot and fill with cold water to cover the potatoes.
3. Boil the potatoes with high heat then turn to medium heat and cover the pot with lid, shimmer for another 15 to 20 minutes. Stick a toothpick or fork into the potatoes to check if they are done. Slightly over-cook will make the mashing easier. Bigger cube and Yukon potatoes might need slightly longer cooking time.
4. While waiting for the potatoes to cook, take the butter out from the fridge and let it soften under room temperature.
5. Drain the potatoes when it is ready.
6. Add butter on the warm potatoes and mashed it with a fork.
7. Add milk if you prefer smoother & creamier texture.
8. Add salt, ground black pepper to taste.
9. Garnish with chives and serve while it is still warm.Screen Shot 2017 05 30 at 10.12.57 AM
