Best Mashed Potatoes ever

Feel in need of some comfort food today. It has been a long difficult week. Luckily these mashed potatoes seem to solve any problem. I like them with a few sausages- the ole "Bangers and Mash"

4 Large Potatoes (peeled and chopped into large chunks)


2 Tbsp olive oil

2 onions (sliced)

8 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)

1½ cups of peas

1 8oz packet frozen spinach, (thawed and drained)

4 Tbsp milk

3 oz butter

1 large tsp Dijon mustard

4 oz cheddar cheese (grated)


1, Boil the potatoes in salted water until soft. Drain and set aside.

2, Meanwhile heat the oil in a wok. Add the onions and garlic and cook until the onions are soft. Add the frozen peas and spinach, cook on a medium heat for 8 minutes.

3, Place the potatoes in a bowl, mash a little. Add the milk and the butter and mash until they are creamy. You may need to add more milk and butter, depending on the potatoes. Add the mustard and cheese and mix it in well.

4 Stir in the vegetables into the mashed potatoes. Season to taste and serve whilst still nice and hot.
