To make 4-6 servings of mashed potatoes you will need approximately:

2 pounds of potatoes
½ to ¾ cup of milk
Salt and pepper (to your taste)
2-6 tablespoons of butter

You can make mashed potatoes in just a few easy steps.

Step 1: Wash the potatoes

Step 2: Peel the potatoes

Step 3: Cut the potatoes into 1 ½ inch chunks

Step 4: Put the potatoes in sauce pan and cover with water (adding 1 teaspoon of salt to the water is optional)

Step 5: Bring to a boil. Turn down to simmer. Simmer 20 minutes

Step 6: Drain the potatoes

Step 7: Add milk, butter, salt and pepper

Step 8: Start mashing!

Keep mashing until the potatoes are creamy and lump free. You can garnish your mashed potatoes with some chopped parsley if you like.

Aaahhhh! Perfection

The Equipment you’ll need:

Sauce pan with a cover
Vegetable peeler
Potato masher
Colander (optional)

Tempted as you might be to try using a blender or a food processor to mash potatoes…DON’T! Believe me, years ago I tried that. You end up with a gluey, uneatable, awful mess. If you are mashing for a crowd, an electric hand mixer will work beautifully!
