‘If there’s one recipe in the world you’ve got to learn, it’s mash potato.’
That’s what chef Robbie Bell told his followers on TikTok in one of his recent videos. But the reaction his dish received was mixed, to put it politely.
He laid out a step-by-step to cooking the ultimate mash potatoes and it had two rather surprising ingredients in it.
Olive oil and nutmeg. Yes, nutmeg.
By the way, it’s just as important to store your potatoes right and we’ve got the how right here.
So here’s the how to make the ultimate mash potato.
Potatoes cut into even chunks
Salt & pepper
Cut your potatoes into similar size chunks, salt the water and simmer the potatoes gently.
Then drain them and dry them a little in the pan before adding butter then mash.
Add olive oil, milk and a little bit of nutmeg and mash again.
Then add salt and pepper to taste and squeeze in a little bit of lemon to top it off

This seemed to divide the foodies in the comment section though with some questioning chef Robbie’s method.
One TikToker wrote: ‘Lemon in mash? What never heard of that in my life.’
While another commented: ‘Oil? And lemon? No gracias.’
But there were some more open-minded foodies who were willing to give the recipe a go.
One wrote: ‘Nutmeg and lemon. Ohhhh next time.’
While another said: ‘Happiness within potato.’
