Maris Piper comfort food at its best

I'm a big potato fan and love Maris Pipers as they are both lovely and versatile.

It's national potato week and the Potato Council is asking bloggers about our favourite ways to eat them. I love lots of different potato recipes from the fancy dauphinoise to potato salad in the summer and the humble roastie in winter. If I had to pick an all time favourite though it would have to be cheesy mash and it's so simple.

Boil Maris Pipers until they are soft, mash and add a chunk of butter and splash of milk (I only use a splash as I like mine quite thick), add black pepper then stir in grated cheese. It's also nice adding finely diced onion which has been lightly fried first. Plonk onto a plate and enjoy this real comfort food!

  1. Wonderful comfort food. Mash is great and with cheese even better. Commenting for myself and on behalf of BritMums and thanking you for taking part
