Mashed Potatoes

Being Irish the potato is a staple in my house! I love them cooked any way possible especially mashed! Enjoy this super creamy easy recipe.

Mashed Potatoes


  • 2.5 lbs Potatoes I love Russett or Yukon Gold
  • 3.5 cups Water for boil
  • 1 1/2 tsp Salt To taste
  • 1 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1 1/2 sticks Butter
  • 1 cup Milk I use almond for my allergy people


  1. In a large pot place peeled and diced potatoes and cover with water. Cook on high heat and boil about 10 minutes and medium heat another 20 minutes.

  2. Remove pot from heat and discard water. (Save the water and sip on for a potassium boost)

  3. In a mixing bowl combine potatoes, butter, milk salt & pepper. Hand mash or use a mixer until creamy.
