    Hi, I have been trying some recipes on here and they have been great, however having always eaten big portions and growing up in a house where big portions were always there I have no idea about portion sizes!!

    I was wondering if anyone could help me, when making mash potatoes, how many medium sized potatoes is right for an adult. Sorry if that sounds like a silly question.

    Thanks in advance.

    Gosh - I have no idea!! haha

    I tend to only make mash for the kids these days & will do prob 2/3 spuds for them two, if thats helps at all!!

    I guess you could see it as so many spuds each while you peel???

    mash freezes well so if you have too much thats what you could do or turn it into bubble and squeak with cabbage and bacon

    I swapped from a big dinner plate to a normal sized one which made my portion sizes smaller straight away. I would normally have a third of the plate as mash, maybe a 1/5 quorn and just under 2/3 vegetables.

    I would liken my mash portion to a large clenched fist, lol
