You’re mashing Thanksgiving potatoes all wrong — viral TikTok hack saves time – New York Post

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.
Before you mash your potatoes for Thanksgiving, you might want to re-evaluate how you prepare them.
A cooking guru on TikTok has shared a hack to make the traditional holiday dish — without even having to peel the spuds.
Lora McLaughlin Peterson — @lorafied on TikTok — posts kitchen and cooking hacks to her 195,300 followers and has gained 1.2 million likes across her videos. And luckily her no-peel potato hack has caught viewers’ attention in time for Turkey Day.
The video — with 676,600 views — shows Peterson making mashed potatoes “without picking up a peeler.”
Peterson starts the video by boiling the potatoes with the skin on, as opposed to peeling them beforehand.
When they’re cooked, she instructs the viewer to “grab a bowl and put a baking rack on top.”
She then cuts the potato in half, lays the halves, cut-side down, on the rack and smashes them — with the potato skin collapsing flat on the rack and never entering the bowl.
“The rack smashes the potato while leaving the skin behind,” she says.
