Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Creamy Mashed Potatoes

by Pam on February 18, 2013

These potatoes were creamy, smooth, and so flavorful and they had just a touch of butter – how great is that!?! I found this recipe in my The Best Light Recipe cookbook from the editors of Cook’s Illustrated  I love this book because they test and re-test recipes until they are just right! These potatoes were a huge hit with the whole family and tasted excellent with the meatloaf (recipe to come) I paired them with. Quick, easy, and comforting – you can’t beat that.

Peel and cut the potatoes. Place them,along with a sprinkling of salt, into a large saucepan and add enough water to cover the potatoes by 1 inch. Bring the water to a boil over high heat then reduce the heat to medium low and simmer until the potatoes are fork tender, about 15-18 minutes. Drain the potatoes.

Place the butter into the milk and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Pour the milk mixture onto the potatoes along with the sour cream; season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Mash the potatoes using a hand masher until creamy and smooth. Place into a serving bowl and serve immediately.  Enjoy.

Banana maple French toast

Print Page

  • Serves: 4

  • Prep time: 10 mins

  • Cooking time: 5 mins

  • Total time: 15 mins

  • Skill level: Easy peasy

  • Costs: Cheap as chips

Thick slices of bread dipped in a cinnamon spiced batter, fried in butter until golden and served with a delicious warm chocolate-flavoured maple syrup this is the ultimate sweet treat for breakfast or brunch. Use a chunky farmhouse loaf and make sure the slices are quite thick – if they’re too thin the bread will soak up too much of the batter and go a bit mushy. Slices of sweetened brioche bread can be used instead of white bread but omit the sugar from the batter. For a lighter dish serve the toast with natural yoghurt instead of chocolate syrup.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 150ml milk
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 25g butter
  • 4 thick slices white bread
  • 6tbsp maple syrup
  • 50g plain chocolate, grated
  • 2 bananas, peeled and sliced

That’s goodtoknow

Scatter over a handful of blueberries, raspberries or sliced strawberries instead of the sliced bananas, if liked.

Method

  1. Place the eggs and milk in a bowl and whisk together thoroughly. Whisk in the sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Dip the slices of bread in the egg mixture making sure they are completely coated. Heat a large knob of butter in a heavy-based frying pan until foaming and add the soaked bread slices. Fry for 1-2mins on each side until golden brown.
  3. Meanwhile, place the maple syrup and chocolate in a small and heat gently, stirring, until the chocolate has melted into the syrup.
  4. Serve the French toast topped with the sliced bananas and drizzled with the warm chocolate syrup.
