    This is the way that I’ve always made my potatoes and I needed a calorie count. Posted on November 2, 2005.

      This is the way I make my mashed potatoes, too. I do start with cold water to cover the potatoes so they cook evenly, not on just the outside first. when finished cooking, I put the potatoes through the potato ricer to eliminate lumps, then whip them with the old potato masher. I always heat my milk in the microwave for 60 seconds. I think it would be foolish to put cold milk into hot potatoes, if I wanted this side dish to remain warm for serving.

      Yum yum! I have never whipped my potatoes before. I used light cream and heated it with the butter before adding it in. It was so light and fluffy and creamy, needed more butter for my taste, so I added in an extra dab. I served it with Trinidad stewed chicken which had it's own gravy and peas in the mix. Delish! I like this hand-mixer method for mashed taters. Thanks for sharing.
