Historically, mashed potato is one of the most popular dishes. The average American can eat around 130 lb of potatoes per year and the world record for the largest serving of mashed potatoes was set in 2012 with around 4500 pounds of potatoes served.

The first written record of mashed potatoes is dated 1747 which surprisingly doesn’t seem that old, considering the simplicity of the dish.
When reheating this classic side dish be sure to do it slowly on the low heat, otherwise you might dry it


  • 4-5 Potatoes

  • Milk 1/2 cup

  • Green onions

  • Parsley

  • Dill

  • Butter 28 g (1 oz)

  • Salt to taste


  • Cut the potatoes into wedges, add water to completely cover the potatoes and let it boil for about 35 minutes (I boil the potatoes without peeling them, to preserve nutrients). Add salt.
  • When the potatoes are cooked, drain all the water, remove the peel, add milk and butter
  • Mash the potatoes with a perforated spatula or you can do it with a fork, don’t mash it for too long or the potato starch will start interacting with the water and you’ll end up with a sticky, slippery mass.
  • Add herbs and stir
  • Your smashed potatoes are ready. This is a great garnish for any meat, fish or vegetables.
