Creamy Mashed Potatoes
But the other day I decided to try something new that didn't require so much planning ahead.
So I did a little Googling and found this recipe.
Very simple. Few ingredients. Little time involved other than peeling the potatoes.
And guess what?
Hubby declared they were his favorite mashed potatoes I have made.
Well, guess it was a winner then!
5 or 6 large Russet potatoes, peeled and cut (I rarely dice, I usually just cut into smaller chunks)
1 Tbsp kosher salt
2-4 Tbsp butter (I think I used 3)
1/4 tsp white pepper or black pepper
1 or 2 cans evaporated milk
Boil potatoes in a large pot of water with salt added.
Okay, you really should bring the salted water to a boil before adding the potatoes but I kind of just did it all at once.
Boil until fork tender (15+ minutes...a little longer if you don't bring the water to a boil first :).
Drain the potatoes and mash. I just used a mixer because I have a ricer, not a masher. I now have a hand masher on order... :)
Add in the butter and pepper.
Add in the evaporated milk slowly until the desired creaminess is reached.
I only used 1 can; it was just right for us.
