Making perfectly fluffy, perfectly creamy mashed potatoes is no easy feat. Just think of all the times you've begrudgingly found a lump in your mash? It's a process people, that requires a simple, but elevated recipe (and maybe even a few tips and tricks).
Luckily for you, we've just discovered the optimum way for making mashed potatoes. And believe it or not, it involves a whisk...
Thanks to @bxgumxo on TikTok, we now know that to make the fluffiest mash ever, you simply need to use an electric whisk. Yep! Just make your mashed potatoes as you normally would (fyi, we've got a great recipe), plug your electric whisk in and get to work mixing!
The result? Perfectly fluffy, perfectly creamy mashed potatoes.
Although it's worth mentioning, we've already given this hack a whirl and found that you're best using super fluffy potatoes, like Maris Pipers, to achieve the ultimate mash consistency. You're welcome!
The video itself has gathered over 440,000 views along with 14,000 likes and hundreds of comments from TikTokers praising @bxgumxo for the hack.
One person said, "I’ve used an electric mixer like this for my mash for 20+ years, it never fails," while another said, "It's true and just so much easier to make it rather than mashing!"
Since we're on the topic of mashed potatoes, have you ever tried making them with stock? Yep, it's a thing!
Now, depending on what you’re serving your mashed potatoes with will determine what stock you use. Having roast chicken with mash? Boil them in chicken stock. If steak and kidney pie and mash is on the menu, get them going in beef stock. And, of course, you can use vegetable stock if you’re making vegetarian or vegan mashed potatoes.
