This recipe was a good base but my mashed potatoes turned out runny . Had to boil more potatoes to make the consistency right which threw off my timing for getting out everything together. I added some fresh parsley (which I always have on hand) to bring In some more flavor. All in all it was a good recipe, not great. Would use another one next time.
- 4 russet potatoes, peeled, and sliced

- 1⁄4 cup butter, room temp
- 3⁄4 cup 1% low-fat milk (start with 1/4 c. and add until your desired consistency)
