we're making

You will want to make mashed potatoes this way every time! Ready in under an hour and perfect for a holiday buffet!

You will need...

Yukon Gold potatoes Kosher salt Whole milk Garlic Fresh thyme Dried bay leaves Unsalted butter



A potato ricer, wooden spoon, large pot and mixing bowl, knife, vegetable peeler, sauce pan, and cutting board

It's amazing!

These are tender, rich, and oh-so buttery! I use a ricer and a few tricks to give them the perfect fluffy texture!

Flour Bowl

Boil, then simmer potatoes until tender.


Drain the potatoes, then stir them while they're dry.


Heat milk and butter with herbs on the stove.


Pass the hot potatoes through a ricer into a bowl. Make sure they're hot!


Discard herbs from the milk mixture, then gradually mix the milk into the potatoes.


There you have it: a perfect bowl of creamy garlic mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
