More About This Recipe

  • Though red potatoes usually aren’t the first potato people reach for when making mashed potatoes, due to their waxier texture, they can still be made delicious if it’s what you have on hand and you have this easy recipe at the ready. Slowly add the milk until you reach your desired consistency. A popular way to serve mashed red potatoes is to make the end result chunkier than your traditional creamy mashed potatoes, and with the skins on (that means no peeling for you!). There’s an added health benefit to this, too since the majority of a red potato’s fiber and vitamins come from its skin. Want more tips on how to perfectly mash your potatoes?
