Here's how to make Smashing Spuds
To make 6-8 servings, take 5 good sized Idaho potatoes and start scrubbing.
Don’t peel the potatoes!
When making Idaho Mashed Potatoes, scrub spuds thoroughly then use a paring knife or peeler to remove three strips of skin, one on each end, and one in the middle. Cut and boil the potatoes until fork tender.
Ready to mash?
Use a potato masher or electric beaters, depending on the consistency you like--extra smooth or a bit chunky.
Next add 1/2 cube butter, 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and a tablespoon of seasoning. We like the Red Robin Seasoning (the same stuff they use on their fries) or you can use Season All or another favorite blend.
Mix together and give it a taste.
