This handy mash potato hack will make your weekend so much easier

Easy. Handy. Job done.

Sometimes the last thing you want to do is slave over a hot oven at the end of the day. You've had a long day at work, and you really don't want to be standing over mashed potatoes for hours (OK, minutes but still).

Well, it doesn't have to take forever, as a hack has been shared for mash potatoes that means dinner will be on the table in no time.

So, for "faff-free" mashed potato, this is all that needs to be done:

Put potatoes in microwave until they’re done all the way through.

Cut in half.

Scoop potato out of skin straight onto plate.

Add butter and smush with fork. Add grated cheese to taste.

Enjoy mashed potato with no peeling, chopping, boiling or washing up afterwards.

Simple. Easy. Takes no time at all. We're sold.
