The trick to the wonderful taste and consistency of these potatoes is not the ingredients, potatoes, butter and milk, but the way they 're mashed- with an electric mixer.
INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):
- 5 potatoes, peeled and quartered
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1/8 cup milk
Fill a medium size saucepan half full of water, and add a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil. Add potatoes to pot; the water should cover the potatoes. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until potatoes are easily pierced by a fork. Drain.
Transfer potatoes to a large mixing bowl. Add butter or margarine and milk, and mash with a potato masher. When well mashed, whip for a minute or two with an electric mixer set on medium speed.
