CW RECIPE: Perfectly Mashed Potatoes

From the girl who never does anything in the kitchen but eat, I can’t believe that this is my fourth recipe on Couchwasabi to date.

Anyway, I was inspired to make my own homemade mashed potatoes after tasting Outback’s unbelievably good version. Without further ado, here’s what you need:


  • 800g medium to large potatoes
  • 80g butter
  • 1-2cups milk
  • salt and pepper

  1. Boil the potatoes in salted water until the skin has cracked–that’s roughly about 20-30minutes.
  2. Drain the potatoes from the boiled water and let it cool down a bit then carefully peel off the skin.
  3. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or, in this case, I used two forks to mash them all nice and smoothly.
  4. I season it with salt and pepper while mashing so the spices are perfectly blended in the potatoes.
  5. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Once fully melted, mix it in the potato along with milk.
  6. Mix well until nice and smooth. Season with more salt and pepper, as needed.

Once everything is mixed all nicely, you can serve it in a nice coffee cup like this:

Remember, a good mashed potato does not need any gravy. It should taste good being consumed alone.

I hope you enjoyed this simple recipe. Do you have other spins for making your mashed potatoes? Let me know through comments! <3

    Just any ordinary potato will do? Coz I’ve watched some vids on youtube and they specified only one variety of potato that’s best only for mashed potato and that is yukon gold. And in the phils i dont think we have that kind of variety. 🙁
