Mark's Mashed Potatoes

I've had so many compliments on these mashed potatoes I should package them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fill 3 qt sauce pan half way with water.
  2. Add garlic powder, Thyme, and (aprox. 3 tbs) salt.
  3. Bring to low boil and add potatoes cubed into 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inch pieces.
  4. Let boil until a fork will easily penetrate large pieces.
  5. Drain off water and add salt and pepper to taste, butter (tastes better that margarine) and milk (carefully).
  6. Mash potatoes (I use a waffled round hand potatoe masher instead of a mixer because I like lumpy, but that takes some elbow grease).
  7. You can work with the ingredients a bit to get the right texture.

Good potatoes.

Great recipe but the 3 tbsp of salt made it much too salty. Next time I'll only add a pinch. Other than that they were lovely!
