Mash with Mustard
Honestly, mashed potatoes and mustard is a match made in heaven. I mean mashed potatoes by themselves are great, but if you’re a regular reader of mine you’ll know I like to take things a step further.
Mustard Mash Ingredients
- Cream (or milk)
- Dijon Mustard
- Wholegrain Mustard
I definitely recommend using the two different mustards, as they both bring something unique to the mash. The dijon adds that classic mustard flavour, without being as overpowering as something like hot English mustard, whilst the wholegrain adds a nice bit of texture.
How to make Mustard Mash
It really is as simple as popping your spuds in cold water and bringing to the boil until knife tender. Drain and mash with butter, then stir in cream and mustards. From there I always pour melted butter over the top just before serving, just because why the heck not?!
Top Tip – Be sure to season this mash, season again, then season some more. There’s nothing worse than bland mash, so be sure to bring out the best with a hefty pinch of salt in the water for boiling and when mashing. I always use salted butter for this reason.
Make Ahead Mustard Mash
You can of course make this mustard mash ahead of time. Just allow to cool, then cover in the fridge for 2 days without the melted butter. Either bring to room temp and reheat in the microwave (mixing a couple of times) or add a splash of cream/milk and stir over medium heat in a pot. Serve with melted butter.
Serving Mustard Mash
So that’s it! No fuss mashed potatoes taken to new heights of flavour. Here’s what I love to serve this mash with:
