Mashed potatoes

what is the big deal with making them like Puree? Lumps are great, give it some bite and potato quality. Turnip mashed in as well, bit of Mustard. Peas, onions. Long Live the lumps i say.

I like mine smooth, with a bit of cream as well as butter. Agree about mustard though, or alternatively horseradish.

Bangers 'n' mash - Beano/ Dandy style (pile of mash, with bangers sticking out at odd angles).

Some finely chopped raw onion mixed in the mashed potato is very nice. (Similar to the Irish dish 'Champ' - mashed potatoes and chopped spring onions, with butter and milk).

I don't mind it a bit lumpy or smooth.

'twas a reference to master chef and all those other poncey food progs your Earliness who dismiss the slightest lump as some kind of barbarism.. I'll take it rough or smooth as well (dont) but life is too short to puree it into baby food. Chuffing hell i once saw that Blomenthal chap spend about an hour with a fine sieve and a spatula making it into paste, absurd.

Don't mind the odd lump. It is more about the flavour of the potato for me. Couldn't be arsed passing through a ricer or a sieve....More washing up for a start.

That might seem extravagant.

However, when one factors in the salaries of one's kitchen staff, and the managerial time taken to counter a riposte of "If ye don't like the tatties, then ye can shove them up yer erse", then a quid a tub from Tesco looks financially viable.

I actually can't stand mash potatoes so there.

remember puking as a kid when I'd eaten some. Left a lasting impression.

Someone should've cleaned it up quicker then.

A labour saving device. Rather like a dishwasher. But cheaper.

As a kid I quite enjoyed a mashed tattie sandwich.

*and when I was a bigger kid*

That's presumably how you became a bigger kid.
