    1. 1
      In a large saucepan over high heat, combine potatoes and just enough water to cover them. ADD SALT; BRING TO A BOIL. Reduce heat to medium low; cook covered for 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are very tender. Drain well; return potatoes to saucepan. Place over low heat to dry out potatoes slightly shaking saucepan occasionally to prevent them from sticking.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, in a small microwaveable bowl, heat milk and butter or oil in microwave ob high for 1 – 2 minutes or until steaming. Add milk mixture to potatoes, mash roughly with a fork. With an electric mixer, beat potatoes until smooth and creamy (if you don’t want chunky mash). Don’t over beat, as potatoes will become gluey. Add pepper. If desired, season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Spoon into warm serving dish if used right away. Sprinkle with parsley.

      Selected the Lemony Mash option and found it to have a bright lively flavor. Must say this is the first time I have ever made mashed potatoes using oil instead of butter. I did increase the lemon zest by 1 teaspoon as other reviewers had stated that the options were a little light on flavor. Thanks for the post.

      Thank you for coming up with some innovative mashed potatoes recipes. I made the Posh Mash for the "Variety is the Spice of Life" event.

      I followed the recipe exactly, and I have to agree with the last review, the garlic didn't really come through, and the cheese was kinda lost.

      However, these potatoes were really good. I think when I make it again, I may add a couple more cloves of garlic and more cheese.

      I made this with the Posh French mash option. The garlic flavor didn't come through as much as I would have liked. All in all it's a nice way to dress up plain mashed potatoes. Thanks for sharing. Made for Variety is the Spice of Life event.
