Mashed Potatoes


I’m sure you’re looking at this picture wondering what the heck is wrong with it. Nothing is wrong with them. I forgot to take the picture when I made them and these were in the fridge.  A lot of people ask me how I make my mashed potatoes. I decided since in a few days I plan to use these left overs for another meal, I could go ahead and post this recipe to make the future recipe easier to get together.

You’ll notice my recipe doesn’t have a lot of precise measurements. It’s because there’s not any. A lot of mashed potatoes is by preference. It’s really not easy to mess them up.

6 potatoes peeled and cut into cubes

pot of cold water, enough to cover all potatoes

optional 2 pinches of salt for water


salt and pepper to taste

4 tablespoons butter

Put salt in the water and then add potatoes. Bring to boil. Cook until potatoes are very tender. Strain. Add butter to potatoes. Use a potato masher and mash the potatoes. You can use a spoon if you choose, but I prefer a hand mixer. I start pouring milk in a little at a time until it reaches the consistency that I would like. Then I use salt and pepper to taste.
