These light and fluffy whipped potatoes are a unique and delicious alternative to the traditional mashed potatoes. They’re seasoned to perfection!
I’ve got to admit, mashed potatoes aren’t my thing. In fact, the past few years I’ve skipped over them at holiday dinners. Something about being on a diet of only mashed potatoes (and Gatorade) for several days after my wisdom teeth were pulled made me completely loose interest in them.
But… I’ve since found a recipe I really love and could eat on the regular, and I do! These fluffy whipped potatoes are everything that traditional mashed potatoes are not. Ultra light, buttery, flavorful, and totally irresistible. The secret? The unique method.
I know, I’m going to get weird on you. But like I mentioned above these are NOT traditional, so don’t expect the process to be either, ok? 😜
You’ll start by steaming the potatoes in a large stockpot or Dutch oven. Using a colander will help prevent the potatoes from absorbing too much water, which means they’ll be ready to soak up the milk and melted butter we’re adding to them. Once the potatoes have been steamed and cooked add them to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (a hand held mixer can be used as well). Gradually pour the warm butter/milk/seasoning mixture to the potatoes. Once the liquid has been incorporated, whip them on high until they’re nice and fluffy, cloud-like.
