can someone remind me of basic mashed potato proportions, including how many spuds per guest?
Amanda is a co-founder of Food52.
2 pounds potatoes : 1 cup milk : 4 tablespoons butter : 1/3 cup heavy cream : 1 1/2 teaspoons salt -- Serves 6.
Remember for Thanksgiving lots of people aren't eating full "servings" of anything. So consider the volume of food before you do your proportions. :) Happy Cooking!!
Great point. But: leftovers!
