Mashed potatoes

Discussion in 'General' started by Hello there!, Nov 24, 2011.

  1. Are you supposed to cook mashed potatoes before you mash them, or after? I always thought it was before.. but this recipe I'm looking at says after. The recipe sounds right.. but Idk.

    Somebody must know!
  2. After makes sense cuz potatoes are pretty damn hard when raw. You might kill yourself trying to mash them before, but I never made mashed potatoes before so its just speculation.
  3. 1.Cook potatoes
    2. Mash them in bowl
    3. Insert 3 cups canna butter after its all mashed then just mix it around.
    4. Feed to grandma, mom, dad, and the whole family!

    A night to remember..
  4. Always cook then mash...Happy thanksgiving!
  5. I peel, chop and then cook the potatoes. I use as little water as possible, then I add whole milk, butter and salt when the potatoes are soft, and mash! Parsley and/or chives are nice a addition. For very creamy potatoes, use your mixer on a low speed to finish them.

  6. I wash them. Then I peel them and chop them up. Put them into boiling water. You know they're done when you poke them with a fork and they fall off the fork. Once they're done I drain them and then I put milk and butter in them and mash them with my mixer.

    You can't mash potatoes before you cook them, they are way too hard.
  7. well i never made mashed potatoes because baked ones are much nicer , damn I used to eat mashed potatoes a lot still think there ok but baked are so nice , try baked please
  8. cook the potatoes first.. has anyone tried mixing sweat potatoes and regular in mashed potatoes?
  9. Thanks for the responses! I considered using some weed in the food.. but my mom's against weed, and I'm actually cooking for her as a surprise. She doesn't even know I'm at her house, because she's working today. She thinks I'm doing Thanksgiving with a friend. I'm sneaky sneaky sir...
