Mashed potato has been known as a side dish for steak. But actually not only that, mashed potato can also be eaten as a substitute for rice, because they provide a long-lasting satiety.
There are two versions of mashed potato, mashed potato without skin and skinned. Most westerners prefer skinned potatoes because mashed potato will taste a little rougher. Resporting The Spruce Eats, potato skin contains many vitamins and minerals that can help boost your immune system.
If you are interested in making it, make sure the potato skins are cleaned thoroughly before cooking. Here's an easy mashed potato recipe that is quoted from All Recipes.
2 pounds (906 grams) of baked potato, peeled and cut into four
2 tablespoons of butter
1 cup (250 ml) of milk
Salt and pepper to taste
