Dreamy Creamy Mash with Mustard and Chives – The Home Made Way

So here’s the truth. When I left home many years ago, I could barely cook a thing. We all still howl with laughter when we reminisce over university days and the time I was asked to make boiled carrots at a dinner party. You’d think the name was obvious enough? Nope. I didn’t have a clue!

I’m happy to say, 22 years on and that’s no longer the case (phew!). I could make mash, though 👍🏻 For all of you out there who were like me, this is for you.

Here at Mums In Real Life, we love a good mashed potato.

As my children’s taste buds are developing, so is the mash potato I serve up at home. The only thing I still don’t add is salt, but that’s not a bad thing. Right?

This mash went down a treat when I served it alongside a honey and mustard gammon joint.

Ingredients:

6 good sized potatoes

2 tsp Mustard

2 tbsp reduced fat sour cream

Knob of butter

Milk

Pepper

Freshly chopped Chives

Method:

Start by peeling the potatoes, cutting into chunks and boiling for 25 minutes (or until soft).

Take off the heat and drain. Place the potatoes back into the saucepan, add a generous knob of butter, the sour cream and a few twists of pepper.

Give it all a good mash, adding splashes of milk until it’s creamy and fluffy. Now add the mustard. Mash again.

Finely chop some fresh chives. Place Mash into a serving bowl and sprinkle the chives on top.
