Fluffy mashed potato with a hint of caramelised onions.
Prep Time 10minutes
Cook Time 30minutes
Total Time 40minutes
2lbspotatoes,peeled and chopped into chunks
3-5tbspbutter,we like buttery mash
salt and pepper to taste
Parsley to garnish,optional
Fill a large saucepan with water and lightly salt. Add in the potatoes and cook until tender, 20-25 minutes.
Whilst the potatoes are cooking, melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a frying pan/wok on a medium heat. Add in the sliced onions.
Cook the onions for about 20 minutes until soft and lovely and brown, stirring occasionally.
Once the potatoes are cooked drain and mash them. (We use a potato ricer and find it much easier!)
Heat the milk up for about 40 seconds and then place in a food processor with half of the onions. Blitz until smooth.
Pour into the pan you cooked the mash in.
Add in the mashed potatoes and stir. At this stage taste and then add in the extra 2 tablespoons of butter if required. Season to taste. Add in the remaining onions (I reserved some to garnish) and mix until combined.
Serve immediately and garnish with some parsley if you'd like.
