Equipment You’ll Need

You’ll need something to boil the potatoes in first. A large pot will work. Then, you’ll need a baking dish with parchment paper. I use these sheets of parchment paper for everything. They make clean up so easy. Lastly, you’ll need something to “mash” your red potatoes with. I used a mason jar.
