Among my friends who i have cooked this for, this is their favorite thing to eat, it's now always top of the request list.
If you dont want to add as much butter as i do, that's fine too, but the more butter the better! I also blitz my mash in a processor to get the potatoes beautifully smooth or as my friend michelle calls it ' nursing home mash.
I could eat this for any meal of the day, so go ahead and indulge, i promise it's worth it.
1kg Potatoes (purple ones work really well)
150g Butter, cut into pieces
Cook potatoes in a large saucepan of simmering salted water until tender.
Once potatoes are cooked, strain the potatoes and place them into a food processor with butter and cream. Blitz until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. serve.
If you do not want to use as much cream as i do you can substitute it with milk.
