A Simple Mashed Potato Variation

One of the recipes served at the Smythe dinner party in Bryony

This recipe is adapted from Miss Beecher’s domestic receiptbook: designed as a supplement to her Treatise on domestic economy.

Browned Potatoes

Boiled potatoes
Cream or milk

Mash potatoes fine, season with salt and butter, and a little cream or milk, place them in a dish, smoothing and shaping the top handsomely, and make checks with a knife; then brown them in a stove, or range-oven, and they are excellent.
