Important question about Mash 🥔

I’m at my grandma’s for dinner and she’s making bangers & mash. I just noticed she leaves the skin on the potatoes.

Normal UK thing? 😂

I can’t say I’ve had them that way before. She says they are more rustic, so we’ll see what that means exactly 😳😳😳😂😂😂

Update… it was delicious 😋

The skin is where all the nutrients are. The rest is just starch.

Delicious, wonderful starch....

I’ve had them here fixed that way. Especially good with new red potatoes, the smaller ones.

Not very common, but I love it. Retains more nutrients, adds texture and flavour, and easier to prepare 😊 But then again I'm the sort of girl who eats the whole apple . . skin, pips, core, and all 😆

@SunshineGirl Eating the apple core is hardcore 😂

I would say the dish is "crushed potatoes" with the skin on. Sounds like a lovely dish nonetheless - if rather unsuited to today's weather!

Sometimes I leave skin on (specially red skin potatoes)
I leave the skins on the potatoes when i make mash spuds .

I leave them on but when I was over there my roomate freaked out like I've never consumed a potato in my life before

It’s just posh mash
Good if you like your mash with more texture. Awful if you like it smooth

My parents leave the skins on. Says it's more rustic and the skins are good for you

I usually leave the skins on, mostly cause I'm lazy. And they add nice flavor.

Not that common but it happens.
And Bangers and Mash is great...hope there were onions

I’ve never had bangers and mash but I like mashed potatoes like that

sounds interesting, glad it turned out well.

I like to have the skin on my cooked potatoes too.
scrub them good and leaving the skin on is super
zerofuks2give · 36-40, M
It’s good that way
Thespis · M
I've had them this way, though I'd prefer peeled.. Unless red potatoes, or gold potatoes or used, then skin on.

No! Leaving the skin on spuds for mashing is weird!
I like it like that.
