New York Times mocked for sharing mashed potato recipe.
The New York Times was mocked on Twitter after sharing a “two-ingredient” mashed potato recipe - that actually lists four ingredients.
NYT shared the two-year-old recipe on their official Twitter account along with a colorful infographic. It calls for two pounds of russet potatoes, 1/4 cup of sour cream, and salt and pepper.
The infographic simplifies the recipe in just a few steps: Boil the potatoes in salted water until soft. Reserve 1 cup cooking water. Drain and mash potatoes. Stir in reserved water 1 tablespoon at a time. Add sour cream, salt, and pepper. The recipe link says that sour cream can be substituted for full fat Greek yogurt.
These mashed potatoes may be the simplest Thanksgiving side there is.
