Mash potatoes?


Gold Member
I just use any white potatoes, usually Tesco cheapest pack, but I like King Edwards best for flavour.
As long as you put the potatoes in cold water and bring to the boil they shouldn't disintegrate, but there are always exceptions to the rule!

To make it creamy I put in either my Hea of LC ex light triangles, or quark or 0% fat Total Greek yogurt and lots of salt and pepper.


Strutting her stuff
I've been getting a special variety of potatoes from Asda thatclaimto be so buttery in taste you don't need to add any. Not sure I'd go that far but they are lovely. And I just add a Butter Bud (from lakeland) at half a syn along with some milk from my HEa.


No Coffee, No Workee
Maris Pipers. Best by far :D They're awesome for SW Chips as well.


loves to chat & post
Hi Lady Pancho
It sounds to me like you are overcooking them.. If i was you just put a knife in when you are cooking them when the knife goes in there done, then mash them. i usually mash mine then stir in cottage cheese (plain one) and mix it upi then microwave it for a minute so it melts a bit and it goes creamy.

Hope you dont think i am telling you how to suck eggs!



Now to maintain.....
i mash mine with quark.free and lovely creamy naughty tasting mash!! tastes like it should be highly synned,lol!

i use standard white potatoes lol i use milk from my allowance and if i want a bit more a creamy a nob of spread usually works :) i find if u chop the potatoes up small then bring to boil and leave to boil for about 20 mins the potatoes are usually soft enough to mash - add the milk from your allowance and theyre usually creamy enough :)
at one of my classes someone suggested mashing an egg thru the freshly cooked tatties!!
I add 1 or 2 eggs in everytime. even for rest of the family, they cant tell

I use standard white potatoes, boil them up and simmer for about 10 minutes (until they are soft) then mash them up with a couple of teaspoons of clover lighter (2 syns)
