Recipe Notes:

1. Potato ricer – to attain a very mushy, close to lump-free creamy texture, you want a potato ricer. A masher will not be fairly as mushy, however in the event you use one with holes in it, it is the closest you will get.
Don’t use a beater – it would make it extra lump free however it will likely be dense and thick, relatively than mushy and creamy like KFC potato.
