- 1 kg potatoes
- 1 and 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup butter
- salt and nutmeg to taste
Let’s start with the potatoes. Choose potatoes of the same size in order to have them well-cooked.
Wash the potatoes and add in salt water. Cook for about 40 minutes until they are tender when pierced with a knife.
Peel the potatoes when they’re still warm. Press them through a medium-mesh sieve into a large bowl. Season with nutmeg and salt and mix.
Melt the butter in a saucepan and add milk. Whisk to combine and add mashed potatoes. The amount of milk added may vary according to the texture of the potato puree you want to get.
Serve the potato puree immediately.
The potato puree can be stored for up to 2 days, in an airtight container. Heat before serving it again.
Add ham, bacon or vegetables if you want to enrich the puree. If you prefer, you can use a grated cheese to give a stronger taste to your puree. Choose the one you like most.
