Uploaded by expertvillage on 17.01.2008

Hi, this is Richard Buccola of New York City and on behalf of Expert Village, today I am
going to show you how to make some mashed potatoes. So you have your scallion. You want
to chop this real, real fine. The finer, the better. Do you have to be a gourmet chef to
chop them up? No. Real simple, just keep your fingers back. Just start to chop them down.
It doesn't matter if they are not fine yet. Because if you chop them once, you can start
chopping them up again. You just get the first chop going, going down and get them all first
rough chopped I guess we'll call it. If you see a big piece of skin like that, just pull
it off. So here's your scallion, just take your tip back end of your knife and start
going back and forward and chopping it real fine. When I come back, we are going to start
adding all of our stuff, checking our potatoes and getting this scallion chopped fine and
it is a great great recipe for any side plate. Mashed potatoes are great for meatloaf which
I make here on Expert Village. Go out and make these potatoes with it. It is awesome
and when I come back, we are going to keep making it right here on Expert Village.
