about 80-100 ml
Butter
1 block (about 5 g)
Consomme stock granules
1/4 teaspoon (optional)
Salt, pepper
to taste

Steps

1. Peel the potatoes and cut into bite-sized pieces. Add the potatoes in a pot of water and bring to a boil.
2. Boil the potatoes until tender, drain the water and mash the potatoes with a potato masher.
3. Add the butter, milk, consomme stock cube and salt into the pot from Step 2 and mix it well with a wooden spatula (add the milk in several batches. Add the salt little by little while tasting it).

Story Behind this Recipe

I don't really have a story, but I just wanted to avoid using heavy cream, a food processor or electric mixer that are such a hassle to clean up, and came up with this recipe lol.
