You've been making your mashed potatoes all wrong…and the right way is quicker AND doesn’t even need a masher

CREAMY mashed potato is the ultimate side – but it can also be quite time-consuming and the hard efforts won't always pay off.

However, according to a cooking enthusiast, there's a more simple way that doesn't involve strenuous mashing and whisking.

The TikTok user Polly Pocketsy (@pollypocketsy) has taken it to social media to share her clever potato mash hack, where it's been seen by close to 45,000 people.

''Only 1 minute to make the floofiest mash ever [sic],'' the food fanatic claimed in the caption.

The simple hack, according to her, doesn't call for any fancy ingredients and kitchen equipment – all you need are cooked spuds (preferably evenly cut), some salt, butter, heavy cream and, perhaps most importantly, a mixer.

The instructions, as demonstrated in the video, are simple – once the peeled potatoes have been cooked, add a generous spoonful of butter and a sprinkle of salt, before blitzing it together with an electric hand mixer.

The video clearly left many impressed, with some cooking enthusiasts tagging friends and sharing their thoughts.

''I don't like mash but this looks delicious,'' commented a fan.
