Buttery Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 20-25 minutes

Servings: 4



  • 1 3/4 lbs peeled and cut into chunks baking potatoes
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg


In a large pot, cover the potatoes with cold salted water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until the potatoes are very tender, 20 to 25 minutes; drain well and transfer to a bowl.

While the potatoes are still hot, using a potato masher, mash in the buttermilk, butter, salt, black pepper and nutmeg. Mash until the potatoes are the consistency you like. Serve piping hot.
