Posted just for Amaranth, Heres a recipe for serving your mashed potatoes at easter, with an easter theme and associated springtime flavours you'll have your easter party guests fighting over.
You will need:
Potatoes 6 -8 avergae sized (pre-boiled)
Spring onions (4-6) (Chopped)
Butter (50g)
Olive Oil
Chives chopped (preferrably fresh, but dried will do)
Sour cream 1 1/2 tbsp (optional)
1 garlic clove (crushed)
Vegetable Masher
Chefs knife
wooden spoon
Mixing bowl (optional)
Baking tray
Ice cream scoop or piping bag.
The "doing" bit.
First of all you will need to mash the potatoes, using the vegetable masher. I dont reccomend sieving themash after, since you will be presenting these potatoes in a rustic fashion anyhow. Just remove any major lumps, until you get a rough "paste" you can mould easily.
Whilst mashing add the butter, and approx 50 / 75ml milk. Any milk will do, but i reccomend full fat, pasteurised.
At this stage also add in the garlic, spring onions and chives.
Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl for mixing if you wish. If you wish to economise on washing up do this in the saucepan you boiled the potatoes in.
Once satisfied with the mixture, you can serve at this point if you wish. If you want to add a little pizazz to these potatoes though, i reccomend you follow the next steps.
Use the ice cream scoop to mould the mashed potato into balls, and tranfer to the baking tray (already greased).
For chef d'hote approach, place mashed potato in piping bag, and pipe out into small whirlpool towers.
Drizzle potato moulds with olive oil, and roast in moderately hot oven (180 degrees celsius) until crisp on the surface. Serve, and amaze your guests!
