Mashed potatoes are just one of those side dishes you have to learn how to make from scratch. Easy to make for a weeknight dinner or to feed a crowd.
Fill pot with water until you just barely cover the potatoes.
Place pot onto the stove and turn on high. Wait until water begins to boil.
Once boiling reduce heat to medium-low. Allow to cook 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes can be cut easily with a fork. The length of cooking time will depend on how big your cubes of potatoes are.
Once potatoes are cooked thoroughly. Remove from heat and strain in a colandar in the sink. Let potatoes sit in the colandar undisturbed for 5 minutes to allow all excess water to drain away.
Add 5 tbsp of butter to the potatoes and heaving whipping cream.
Mix in any additional salt or pepper to your preferred taste.
Transfer mashed potatoes to a serving dish. Top with remaining 3 tbsp of butter and garnish with dried parsley (optional).
