Homemade Mashed Potatoes

Submitted by: RJHALLSTROM

Introduction

Old-fashioned, whole milk, real butter mashed potatoes. They can still be considered healthy if you eat a small portion alongside your other low-calorie foods. These can be considered a "healthy carb" comfort food, instead of reaching for the ice cream, chocolate or other sugar-laden food. The ingredients listed will make enough for about 18 1/2 cup servings (I only make these for family gatherings or holiday dinners). Old-fashioned, whole milk, real butter mashed potatoes.

Ingredients

    5 lbs white potatoes
    1 stick butter
    1 cup milk
    1 T. salt
    1 tsp black pepper

Directions

Peel and wash the potatoes, then dice them into 1' pieces (approximate size is ok). Place in a large pan, cover with water, bring to a boil.

Lower heat to medium and gently boil for about 20 minutes. Potatoes should pierce easily with a fork when done.

Remove pan from heat. Using a colander, drain the potatoes and return them to the pan. Slice up a stick of butter and add to the potatoes.

Mash potatoes with hand mixer. While mixing, add milk, salt and pepper, and continue beating until potatoes are smooth (you can leave lumps if you prefer them that way).
