Fluffy Potatoes

Fluffy Potatoes

25 mins



  • 5 large (about 1kg) Red Jacket potatoes, peeled, coarsely chopped
  • 40g butter
  • 80ml (1/3 cup) warm milk
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper


  • Step 1

    Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil over high heat. Add potatoes and cook for 10 minutes or until tender. Drain and return to the pan. Stir over a medium heat until potato is floury and all the moisture has evaporated. Remove from heat.

  • Step 2

    Use a potato masher or fork to mash until smooth. Use the back of a wooden spoon to press one-third of the potato though a fine sieve into a large heatproof bowl. Repeat, in 2 more batches, with the remaining potato. Return to pan.

  • Step 3

    Add the butter and milk. Use a wooden spoon to stir until smooth and fluffy. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
