Popeyes Mashed Potatoes – The Best Recipe

Popeyes Mashed Potatoes

When it comes to breakfast, I’m a big fan of popeyes mashed potatoes. The first time I had them was when I was in high school and my friend took me out for lunch at a fast-food restaurant. We ate at a small greasy spoon diner and she ordered the classic chicken biscuit (with everything). When the waitress brought our order, she said, “this is the best part,” after which she gave me some of her chicken biscuits. It was crispy on one side and soft on the other, exactly like popeyes potatoes.

How to make the Popeyes Mashed Potatoes

  • Use cold butter.

The secret to making the best mashed potatoes is in the butter. The butter needs to be cold before you melt it, which will result in fluffier and less grainy-textured mashed potatoes. So if you want to make your mashed potatoes better, start by getting yourself some cold butter!

  • Add heavy cream.

Mashed potatoes are made up of three parts: water, flour and butter (or oil). The fat in your butter or oil makes up most of what makes up a successful mash—but what about those other two parts? Adding heavy cream helps cut through the starchiness of flour so that you can get a smooth textured mash with little bits of potato visible between each forkful!

  • Don’t overwork the potatoes

  • First and foremost, potatoes aren’t meant to be stored in the freezer. You can freeze them for up to two months, but after that, they start to become freezer burnt and not as good. If you do decide to freeze them, make sure that you can still easily scoop them out of their container before freezing!
  • When it comes to storing the potato chunks themselves, you can either just put them back into their original packaging or put them in a sealed bag. If you want to keep them separate from each other, use a ziplock bag or something similar to keep them separate from each other and from any other foods that might contaminate them (like nuts).

Reheating

You can reheat in a few different ways.

  • Microwave: Place the bag or box of frozen potatoes in the microwave and cook on high for 3 minutes, or until heated through.
  • Oven: Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C). Spread the mashed potatoes on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, or until warmed through and golden brown at the edges.
  • Toaster: Place the bag or box of frozen potatoes in a toaster oven and cook on high for 3 minutes, or until heated through and golden brown at the edges.
