Foolproof Traditional Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by RedVinoGirl

This is a recipe for simple, tasty, perfect and traditional mashed potatoes. I found that I always made potatoes and had to eyeball ingredients and keep tasting and tasting to get perfect results. This recipe is about as perfect as I could find. My family really likes traditional garlic, etc. This is the one for us. Hope you like it too.
