Mummu Mashed Potatoes
I’m sure everyone thinks their mom makes the best mashed potatoes ever, but mine really does ;). My kids call these “Mummu Mashed Potatoes” and they are a classic for the holiday table. They also count as major comfort food at my house. The secret is buttermilk and a pinch of nutmeg. They are still good if you use milk. There is something about the nutmeg that takes these humble spuds to the next level.
6-8 medium yellow flesh potatoes (Yukon golds work well), washed and quartered
1 tsp white pepper (ground)
1/4 C butter
1/4 C buttermilk (or milk)
pinch of nutmeg
Salt to your taste
- Gently boil potatoes until fork tender.
- Drain, add butter and mash.
- Add buttermilk slowly, mashing as you go.
- Add white pepper, nutmeg and salt.
Serves 4 as a side dish.
