This is a good one but, when adding the water to the pot, just cover the diced potato. And also use cold water to start for even temp when cooking. Also for those of us who want less fat, I recomend using molly mcbutter for that wonderful buttery taste without all the fat.
I picked this recipe for my step-son, who loves mashed potatoes and thinks they are hard to make. Used two large potatoes and kept the remaining ingredients the same. The only thing I would do differently is thickly slice the potatoes so it easier to tell when they are done. The end-product turned out well and my step-son can now make mashed potatoes whenever he wants them. Thanks.
A great proportional recipe for those of us who live alone. I will add it to my For two Cookbook. I used slightly less butter, as I had some leftover buttermilk that I used for this! It was great!! Next time I have company I want to impress, ahem, I am gonna double this one, and I bet it will be perfect. Thanks for posting this one, 462. I hope you don't mind me using your first name!
Add the milk slowly until you get the desired consistency. If you just dump in 1/2 cup milk you'll get very bad results unless you have an unusually large potato.
I left the peel on to get more vitamins, and sliced it to cook quicker. Easy, quick and very good! Thanks!
