Best Mashed Potatoes Recipe

I know you must be thinking, why am I crazy about this simple dish? But these are not regular mashed potatoes. These Gordon Ramsay Mashed Potatoes are infused with rich, creamy, and aromatic flavors, and they always take me back to my childhood.

When I was a small kid, my mother made creamy mashed potatoes for me and my family. So today, I was going through some recipes, and somehow, I came across this famous Gordon Ramsay Mashed Potatoes recipe, and hence, I decided to share it with you all. 

To add to it, people often describe this dish as a cloud of mashed potatoes because of their fluffiness and softness, and well, I won’t disagree with that. It has a perfectly smooth and even texture, free from lumps. Now that you know much about the recipe, let’s dive into the details.

Equipment Required For Gordon Ramsay Mashed Potatoes 

Look below, and you will find a list of equipment I mentioned that will help you make these mashed potatoes.

  • Saucepan To make these mashed potatoes, you first need to boil the potatoes. Therefore, I recommend using a saucepan to boil them.
  • Fork I use a fork to mash the potatoes. However, you can also use a potato ricer or masher for better results. I don’t suggest using a food processor or blender, as they can over-mash the potatoes. 
  • Knife I suggest using a sharp knife to cut the potatoes into chunks. It’ll help you cut the potatoes evenly. 
  • Colander – Colander helps me to drain the potatoes properly. It removes the excess moisture from the potatoes. 
  • Rubber Spatula – I prefer using a large rubber spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure even mixing.

  • 1 Kg Yukon Gold Potatoes – If you have trouble finding Yukon Gold potatoes, you can also use Russet potatoes.
  • 100 ml Whole Milk – I don’t like whole milk, so sometimes, I substitute it with soy milk. It’s healthy and best for people following a vegan-friendly diet. You can also use cashew and almond milk.
  • 100 ml Double Cream

  • ½ Teaspoon Black Pepper

How To Store & Reheat This Gordon Ramsay Mashed Potatoes?

I have mentioned some ways to store these Gordon Ramsay Mashed Potatoes so you can enjoy them anytime. Look at the description below:

Storing These Gordon Ramsay Mashed Potatoes 

  • Refrigerator You can store these mashed potatoes in the refrigerator for four to five days. But before storing, cool them down to room temperature. Also, while storing, transfer this dish to an airtight container or cover it with plastic wrap. This will prevent the dish from absorbing any odors from other dishes kept in the fridge. It also prevents skin formation. 
  • Freezer Despite being a tricky process, freezing is the best method for storing these mashed potatoes for a longer time. Allow them to cool at room temperature and then transfer them to a freezer-safe bag. Whenever you feel like eating them, make sure to thaw them overnight and then serve. 

Reheating These Gordon Ramsay Mashed Potatoes 

Reheating these mashed potatoes is effortless; just follow the guide properly to retain the same flavors and textures. 

  • Stovetop When ready to serve these mashed potatoes, simply reheat them using a stovetop. Place a batch in a saucepan or pot and let them reheat for about 10-15 minutes at medium-low heat. Also, storing may affect the texture of these mashed potatoes, so I add a splash of milk and a pat of butter to retain texture. 
  • Oven – These mashed potatoes can be reheated wonderfully in the oven. When ready to reheat these mashed potatoes, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. However, it’s necessary to add milk and butter as it’ll help restore the textures of these mashed potatoes. 
  • Microwave Reheating these mashed potatoes in the microwave is also efficient. Add the required quantity to the microwave-safe dish, covering them properly with a wet paper towel. However, for best results, remember to add milk and butter.
