The viral video showed how she mashed up Potato It can be prepared in a hassle free manner. First, the potatoes were boiled directly with their skins on. Cook them and leave them aside to cool down a bit. Now, Laura McLaughlin suggested taking a bowl and putting a baking rack on top of it. You can also use a grill rack for this. Then you cut the potato in half and put it on the metal rack and push it from the top. This simple act of pushing got the metal rack separating the potato skins from the inside. Thus, the resulting potatoes were transferred directly to the bowl without much effort – resulting in quick and easy potato mashing without peeling or chopping!
