Ingredients
  • 2 pounds medium red-skinned potatoes, scrubbed
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus additional for salting water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 to 4 scallions (white and green parts), finely chopped

Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan, cover with cold water, and season with salt. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook until potatoes are very tender, about 20 minutes.

Stir in half of the scallions, season with the salt and pepper, to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl and scatter the remaining scallions on top before serving.

Very tasty and easy to make-loved it! Karen The Chef item not reviewed by moderator and published
Like any recipe you need to make it your own. The onions add a new flavor to a standard favorite. This recipe is super easy to make and very tasty. I added extra milk and butter as my children like creamy mashed potatoes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These smashed potatoes were pretty good. I would recommend sauting the shallots before adding them to the smashed potatoes, they were a bit to raw for me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
aside from no directions on the size the potatoes should be cut, this was alright. slightly bland, for my tastes. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Even though there was a misprint in the recipe it was great. All my family loved it. Will make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I watched the show and agree that Tyler did not put in peppercorns or bayleaf during filming. But adding this to the milk while it warms up would add good flavor. I am not sure that it is a mistake. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I watched the show, and they didn't add anything but the ground pepper and scallions. Peppercorns and bay leaf are probably an error. Never heard of a bayleaf in potatoes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
