lazy (s)mashed potatoes

Who likes to peel potatoes?  I often make these potatoes when I do not want to bother to peel the skins of potatoes, and want something slightly different (and lighter) than regular mash.

It best is to use potatoes with very thin skin- usually a new potato but also some types of Yukon gold (as known in the US).

Ingredients

Directions

Put the potatoes in a large saucepan and add enough cold water to cover. Season with salt.

2
Done

Bring to a simmer, uncovered, until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 45 minutes.

3
Done

Remove potatoes from saucepan and drain all water.

4
Done

Place 3 tablespoons butter and about 2 tablespoons olive oil in saucepan. Gently melt the butter.

5
Done

Once butter is melted, mix into the olive oil. Place potatoes back into pan, on top of butter/oilive oil, and using a potato masher, gently break apart the potatoes.

Mix a bit with spoon- you want the potatoes to almost remain whole but to coat with the butter mixture.
