Paula Dean Mashed Potato Recipe

Know About Your Ingredients:

Potatoes: 3 medium potatoes (peeled, coarsely chopped). Fresh potatoes are boiled, baked, or fried and used in various recipes.

Butter: 4 tablespoons of butter (at room temperature). For butter, churn cream until butterfat and buttermilk separate.

Garlic: 1 teaspoon of garlic (finely minced). Garlic is used as a flavouring agent but can also be eaten as a vegetable.

Sour cream: ¼ cup of sour cream (at room temperature). The cream is mixed with a lactic acid culture to make sour cream. The bacteria in the culture thicken and sour the cream.

Milk: 1 tablespoon of milk (plus some extra at room temperature). It adds moisture to batter or dough and gives baked goods protein, colour, and flavour.

Salt: 1 teaspoon of salt. Salt is used to season food and make it taste better.

How to Make Paula Deen Mashed Potatoes:

Step 1: Put some water and a little bit of salt in a medium saucepan. Add the potatoes and boil them for about 15 minutes. Then, pour off the water and put the potatoes back in the pan.

Step 2: Add garlic, butter, and sour cream to it. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher until they are well-mashed and everything is mixed together.

Step 3: Mix in a tablespoon of milk and stir the mixture. If you feel like the consistency isn’t right, add more.

Step 4: Mix well after adding salt and pepper. Your tasty mashed potatoes are ready.

Paula Dean Potato Cakes Recipe

Potato cake is a name for many different kinds of potato dishes worldwide, such as a patty of hashed potatoes, a fried patty of mashed potatoes, a slice of potato that has been battered and fried, or a flatbread made with mashed potatoes and flour. In some parts of Australia, a thin piece of battered and deep-fried potato is called a potato scallop, potato cake, or potato fritter.

Know About Your Ingredients:

4 cups of Chive and Onion Mashed Potatoes; the recipe follows leftover mashed potatoes
2 cups of divided panko breadcrumbs
1 large lightly beaten egg
1/4 cup plus more (if needed) vegetable oil

1/2 cup of softened chive and onion cream cheese
1/4 cup of softened butter

How to Make Paula Deen Potatoes Cakes:

Step 1: Mix the mashed potatoes, 1 cup of panko, and the egg in a large bowl. 

Step 2: Make patties about 3 inches across from the potato mixture. Use the last cup of panko to coat the cakes.

Step 3: Put the vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add half of the patties and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown. Repeat the process with more oil and the remaining patties if you need to. Serve warm.

Ingredients

  • 3 Medium potatoes Peeled, coarsely chopped
  • 4 Tbsp Butter At room temperature
  • 1 Tsp garlic Finely minced
  • 1/4 Cup sour crea At room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp milk Plus some extra at room temperature
  • 1 Tsp salt

Instructions

  • Put water and salt in a saucepan. Cook potatoes for 15 minutes. Then drain and return the potatoes to the pan.
  • Add garlic, butter and sour cream. Mix the potatoes well with a potato masher.
  • Add milk and whisk. If there's inconsistency, add more.
  • Mix salt and pepper. Delicious mashed potatoes are ready.

Tips

  • If you only want to prepare the raw potatoes ahead of time, you can keep them in a stockpot (or large bowl) of cold water for up to 4 hours. 
  • Don’t add cold milk to the mash. Too much cold milk can make the mixture sticky.
  • If you want to keep the water out of your potatoes while you boil them, leave the skins on and take them off after they are done.
  • When boiling potatoes, don’t cut them too small, or they’ll lose flavour.
  • If you want a creamy taste and texture, you can’t let the boiled and drained potatoes cool before mashing.
  • Don’t even think about touching your blender or food processor. Using the power of your own two hands is better, and you’ll be rewarded with an airy, fluffy purée.
