Ingredients for 4 persons
- 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.
- 40 g of butter

Wash potatoes with water.
Cut potatoes into large pieces.
Put the potatoes in a saucepan with a pinch of salt, cover with water.

When the water is boiling, lower the intensity of the fire and continue cooking covered for 20 minutes; adapt the power of the fire to always have a slight boiling of the water throughout the cooking time.
At the end of cooking, drain the cooked potatoes, then put them back in the pan.
Place the butter on the hot potatoes.
Using a potato masher, mash the cooked potatoes until you obtain a smooth mash without pieces.
