This buttery potato side dish packs a zesty punch, thanks to fresh lemon and capers. To keep mashed potatoes warm for up to two hours, place them in a heatproof bowl over a pot filled with three inches of barely simmering water; cover to seal in the steam.

  • Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine 5 tablespoons butter, milk, lemon juice, zest, and capers. Heat until butter is melted and the mixture is warm to the touch.

  • Fold the milk mixture and parsley into the mashed potatoes, and season with salt and pepper. Dot with remaining tablespoon butter just before serving.
