Make this smooth, creamy, and delicious mashed potatoes for a special celebration or Sunday lunch. It’s surprisingly easy to prepare and super flavorful! Serve with chopped green onions or extra butter on top.

Preparation and Cooking Time

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Servings: 2


50 ml whole milk

25g butter, sliced into small pieces

500g russet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

1 garlic clove, finely grated

salt and black pepper to taste


green onions, chopped



Medium Pot

Potato Masher


Step 1

In a medium pot, add the potatoes and cover with cold water, then sprinkle with salt. Bring to a boil over high heat.

Step 2

When it starts boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Drain, then place it back in the pan to steam dry for about 3-5 minutes.

Step 3

Place the milk, butter, and garlic in a saucepan and warm over low heat. Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes for a lumpier mash.

Step 4

Add the warmed milk mixture, pepper, and salt into the bowl with the hot mashed potatoes. Use a wooden spatula to beat everything together until the mash is creamy and smooth and the butter is melted.

Step 5

Serve in bowls and garnish with chopped green onion and butter.

Recipe Notes

1. I recommend that you add 2 teaspoons of garlic powder if you prefer a stronger garlic flavor.

2. To achieve very creamy potatoes, use a hand masher or potato ricer. A food processor, stand mixer or hand mixer can also be used, but it will break down the starches in the potatoes and result in a gummy texture.
