This special mashed potato recipe fuses all the comfort of whipped buttery mashed potatoes with the most gorgeous elegant flavors of fresh duck fat saved after making my roasted duck. These are literally the most decadent mashed potatoes of all!


By Jill’s Gourmet Dreams September 2021


  • 2½ pounds baking Potatoes (like Russett), cut in quarters

  • 1 stick butter

  • 3-4 tbsp Whole Milk (plus more if needed for consistency)

  • 1-2 tbsp Duck fat, (or as much as desired, I used a little extra!)

  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Boil Potatoes in salted water until tender (knife goes in super easily, and potatoes break apart), then drain.

  2. Place back in cooking pot off heat, and add the stick of butter, milk, duck fat, salt, and pepper.

  3. Using a hand mixer, whip potatoes well until all is blended smooth. Add additional milk as needed for smooth consistency yield. Taste and season as needed.

  4. Garnish with duck meat on top and crispy skin. Then serve and enjoy! So incredibly delicious!
