Square Potatoes

We all know potatoes are round or oval, so why not plate them in an unusual way?


  • Red potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter
  • 1/3 cup fat free milk
  • Chives
  • Salt
  • Large pot
  • Water
  • Strainer
  • Potato masher (or large fork)
  1. Scrub the potatoes under water, and pat dry them
  2. Cut up potatoes into cubes (keep the skin on them)
  3. Put them into a pot and fill with water just above the potatoes
  4. Add salt to the water (1-2 tablespoons)
  5. Boil them until tender (the smaller the cubes the faster they cook)
  6. Strain the potatoes and add them back into the pot
  7. Mash the potatoes
  8. Add milk and butter (and a pinch of salt if needed)
  9. Grab a Square Form (see picture above) and fill it with the potatoes.
  10. Push the potatoes down in the form
  11. SLOWLY remove the Form
  12. Top the potatoes with chives


I made these square potatoes for my pan seared chicken topped with sautéed onions, peppers, and corn.
