  • 1 kg of yellow fleshed potatoes (eg Bintje). If you buy your potatoes at the supermarket, it is often written on the packaging whether the potatoes are suitable for mashing.

Peel potatoes.

Wash potatoes with water.

Cut potatoes into large pieces.

Step 3:

At the end of cooking, drain the cooked potatoes, then put them back in the pan.

Place the butter on the hot potatoes.

Step 4:

Using a potato masher, mash the cooked potatoes until you obtain a smooth mash without pieces.
