Method

Place potatoes in a pan with just enough water to cover them.

Bring to the boil, then cover with a lid and simmer for 20 minutes or until tender, drain.

Bring the milk to the boil, then pour the milk over the potatoes and mash until smooth.

Season to taste and serve immediately.

Just a few simple ingredients can transform classic mashed potatoes into the perfect partner for any dish:

Apple Mashed Potatoes

Add a grated red skinned eating apple, tossed in a little lemon juice to the mash just before serving.

Horseradish Mashed Potatoes for Roast Beef

Try adding a teaspoon or two of horseradish sauce to the mash just before serving with beef.

Pesto or Mustard Mashed Potatoes

Stir in 1-2 teaspoons of pesto or mustard per person.

Caramelised Onion Mashed Potatoes

Add caramelised onions to a bowl of mash to serve with beef casserole

Herb Mashed Potatoes

Mix in chopped fresh herbs such as oregano or dill, which are delicious with chicken or fish, or try basil or thyme if you're serving the mash with a tomato-based dish.

Alex Mackay’s Baked King Edward, Spinach & Feta Pie Recipe

“This is the good King Edward’s twist on the Greek filo pastry pie Spanakopita. I love a playful recipe, my pie is nestled into the potato and I serve it in a pie dish but there is no pastry in sight. Bags of spinach vary greatly in size so any that you have leftover you could serve as a side salad or wilt with some garlic to serve with the pies.”
