Ingredients

  • 6 large potatoes about 2 lbs, peeled and cubed

  • Add in the cubed potatoes and stir.
  • Allow to boil for 20 minutes or until fork tender. Stir occasionally.
  • Drain and add potatoes to a large bowl.
  • Use a potato masher or large fork to mash the potatoes to your liking (I like some texture. *SEE NOTE)

  • Enjoy!

Notes

NOTE: If you prefer really smooth mashed potatoes, you can use an immersion blender and blend the potatoes, butter, and milk until smooth OR you can place in a blender in batches before returning to the bowl and stirring in the remaining ingredients.
