Mashed potatoes have always been a classic holiday favourite. This particular recipe makes creamy, buttery, and indulgent potatoes. Plus, this dish is budget-friendly and can easily feed a crowd.
The best part of all? This easy recipe is perfect for beginners and requires only six ingredients. With a little effort, you can make fluffy, yummy mashed potatoes with buttermilk, which will be a delicious addition to your festive spread.
Put the potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water by two inches. Add 2 tablespoons of salt, bring to a boil, and cook until the potatoes are fork tender, about 25 minutes. Drain well. While the potatoes are cooking, combine the butter and buttermilk in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer.
Working in batches, pass the cooked potatoes through a food mill set over a pot (or just use a potato masher). Stir the hot buttermilk mixture into the potatoes until they are smooth and creamy. Season generously with pepper and add more salt as needed. Stir in the green onions.
Cover and keep warm over a simmering pot of water until ready to serve.
