A question about a recipe: Marge’s (Twice Cooked) Mashed Potatoes

1c121380 591f 490f 9e8a 0706385bb44d  img 3624

I have a question about step 3 on the recipe "Marge’s (Twice Cooked) Mashed Potatoes" from coffeefoodwritergirl. It says:

"When potatoes are done, drain, put back in pan, add butter, cream and garlic. Whip with hand held beater over low heat until large chunks are gone and butter is melted. Add sea salt and pepper, adjust for taste and beat again to incorporate. You want the potatoes on the almost creamy side, but be careful not to over-mix or they will become gummy.

" How much butter should be added?

I'm sorry I don't have an answer for you, but you can always try sending the recipe author a direct message!

It's not my recipe nor my method but I can tell you this: The more the better! If I'm cooking to impress, for each pound of potatoes, I'll use a quarter pound of butter (cut into pieces) then add sufficient heavy cream for consistency (two steps, in that order, to preclude turning the potatoes into glue).

Most people add less, some add even more, it's totally up to you how rich you want them to taste.
