➡️ Cooking tips for the German mashed potatoes recipe 🔎

Mashed potatoes belong to the most appreciated food recipes throughout the planet.

Despite its simplicity, this creamy mashed potatoes recipe is very popular and is prepared all over the world. In some countries, it’s known as “German mashed potatoes”, probably because there was made for the first time.

The quantity of milk and sour cream that you can add to potatoes is different and depends mainly on two things – the quantity of water from potatoes (this is different from one type of potatoes to another) and how creamy you want to make the potatoes.

I do recommend to combine potatoes by hand for a more evident texture with very small potato pieces.

Some make mashed potatoes with butter by mixer, but when you prepare it in this way, its texture is very fine and can become gummy very easily.

Besides sour cream and butter, you can add other ingredients to flavor potatoes. Some of the most used aromas include garlic, fried onion, spring onion, parsley, dill, smoked cheese, and so on.

A very important tip when you make this potato recipe is to serve the side dish as soon as you can after you make it because potato mash has the best taste when it’s warm.

Regarding potato types used to make potato mash, there are different opinions. Some say that potatoes with less water in the composition are better. I agree with them, but not all the time you have the perfect potatoes to make a side dish, isn’t it?

I made potato mash with different potato types, red and white, and every time the food was great, so simply ignore people who say only a potato variety is good.

However, baby potatoes, namely spring potatoes, are not suitable to make this recipe. Instead, I recommend you use baby potatoes to make buttered potatoes, home fries, oven-roasted potatoes, creamy dill potatoes, and so on.

Potatoes with sour cream and butter are at top of the most popular side dishes and can be served along with almost any main dish – roast pork, roast chicken, kebabs, schnitzel, and many more.

Some people ask me what to do with leftover potato mash. You can simply heat it up by following my simple trick: place potato mash in a skillet and add over very hot milk by mixing continuously until creamy again.
