National Potato Day

Date Posted:

As it is National Potato Day in Ireland this very day, we thought we'd share Tim's recipe of Puréed Potatoes which is served in our Restaurant.

This simple and delicious creamed potato can be also be used for Tim's Scallion Mash by adding 4 chopped scallions to the cream before heating.  Indeed for Tim's Basil Mash, add 8-10 chopped fresh Basil leaves to the cream before heating.  Tim favours Rooster Potatoes for mashing, with Golden Wonders as a close second for flavour and texture.



10-12 medium potatoes, washed, peeled and cubed
Salt & pepper
80g butter
200ml cream


Put the potatoes in a pot with saled water.  Bring to the boil and cook for 25 minutes. Drain, mash and transfer to a bowl.  

In a small saucepan, heat cream gently and reduce by one-third.  Add butter and allow to melt.

Add the cream mixture to the potatoes and mix.  Reheat and season to taste
