  1. Peal your potatoes
  2. Then cut each potato in four pieces (you could leave them whole, but I just find cutting them up help to both in cooking them quicker and mashing them up with ease)
  3. Now place them into a pot and ad water.
  4. Boil them for approximately 20-25 minutes (gas mark: 4). The potatoes are ready when they become really soft – which means that when inserting a fork into it the potato should fall right off.
  5. When ready, drain the water from the potatoes.
  6. Now place your potatoes in a bowl.
  7. Then add your butter, salt, garlic salt and white pepper.
  8. With a mixer, potato masher or a fork, mash up your potatoes with the butter and spices.
  9. Next add in the cream and hot water. Continue to mix all ingredients together until a smooth mixture is formed.
  10. Now add and mix in the Cayenne Pepper and Tabasco.
  11. Place into a serving plate or bowl and sprinkle some Cayenne Pepper on top
  12. Ready to serve. Enjoy!

      Chris, 5 stars for this recipe. I wish that I could add extra stars for inclusion of white pepper, one of my all-time favorite seasonings, which brings wonderful nuances to dishes.

      I love this recipe! Coming across your recipe today is a fun synchronicity: last evening I served chili for dinner and kept hankering after cayenne mashed potatoes, so I mashed potatoes and added in some of the chili: it was excellent! Of course, your recipe is quicker and easier to prepare when my next cayenne mashed potatoes hankering descends upon me. (tee hee)

      Thank you for sharing this wonderfully easy and satisfying recipe.

      Kind regards, Stessily
