Texas Roadhouse Mashed Potatoes Ingredients

  • 3 pounds Idaho potatoes
  • 1 1/2 sticks of butter[3]
  • 1 1/8 cups whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt (Kosher is best)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper[4]
  • Brown gravy topping

Texas Roadhouse Mashed Potatoes Recipe

  1. Prepare the Idaho potatoes by washing and peeling them. Cut potatoes into slices.
  2. Place the potatoes in a medium-sized pot, then add enough water to the pot to cover the potatoes well.
  3. Bring the potatoes to a boil, then reduce heat to maintain a gentle rolling boil. Continue cooking until the potatoes are tender, roughly 15 minutes.
  4. Remove the pot from the heat, then drain the potatoes in a colander.
  5. Return the potatoes back to the pot, then add butter and milk to the pot.
  6. Whip potatoes with a wire whisk to create fluffy mashed potatoes. Smoother mashed potatoes require more whisking. If you prefer heartier potatoes, feel free to leave some of the lumps in the mixture.
  7. Use a spatula to fold the black pepper and salt into the mashed potatoes.
  8. Cover the mashed potatoes with a brown gravy of your choice.

Making Mashed Potatoes

Good Housekeeping magazine presents an overview of the basic mashed potatoes cooking method and offers some variations that can be used on the Texas Roadhouse mashed potatoes recipe.


  • The secret to making a copycat Texas Roadhouse mashed potatoes side dish is to use real butter, add the salt after the potatoes are mashed, and top them with the options provided at the restaurant. If you want to make a healthier version of this dish, exchange the butter with a low-calorie substitute and use lower-fat milk. Reduce the amount of milk by 1/2 cup if using skim or 1 percent milk to avoid watery mashed potatoes.
  • Make a Loaded Mashed Potatoes Dish: Top the finished potatoes with sour cream, cooked and crumbled bacon, and shredded cheese.[5]
  • If you want a different taste without adding a lot of toppings, mix in a couple of tablespoons of fresh chopped garlic before adding the salt and pepper.[6]
  • Make your own brown gravy just like the one served at Texas Roadhouse restaurants. Combine water, beef bouillon, and seasonings over low heat with a bit flour to thicken.[7]
