The first step is to peel the potatoes and dice them into little cube shapes. Place them in a bowl and cover them with cold water. Now, boil the potatoes over high heat and let them cook until the potatoes become tender. Strain the potatoes and begin mashing them. You can use a potato masher or your clean hands. Just be sure to mash out all the lumps until the texture becomes smooth.
Add the other ingredients and continue to mash the potatoes, slowly increasing the frequency. It is best to start out with ½ a cup of heavy cream or whole milk and then build your way up from there to match the consistency you desire. Taste test the potatoes and adjust the salt and pepper accordingly.
Garnish the creamy mashed potatoes with the finely chopped green onion and extra butter if required. Serve the dish hot, and its texture will be the finest, guaranteed to melt in your mouth.
