ingredients

directions

  • Place the potato on a pot and fill it (the pot not the potato) with water.
  • Put it on the stove and wait for the potato to be tender (you can tell cause you can stick a fork in it without any trouble, it just slides).
  • Drain the water and place the potato in the same pot.
  • With a fork mash the potato, it will look dry don't you worry.
  • Put salt and pepper (as much as you like), butter and milk, mix it all and watch the creaminess appear.
  • You don't even have to serve it on a dish, you can pig out on it in the same pot!
  • Enjoy.

    Add the milk slowly until you get the desired consistency. If you just dump in 1/2 cup milk you'll get very bad results unless you have an unusually large potato.

    I left the peel on to get more vitamins, and sliced it to cook quicker. Easy, quick and very good! Thanks!

    This is a good one but, when adding the water to the pot, just cover the diced potato. And also use cold water to start for even temp when cooking. Also for those of us who want less fat, I recomend using molly mcbutter for that wonderful buttery taste without all the fat.

    I picked this recipe for my step-son, who loves mashed potatoes and thinks they are hard to make. Used two large potatoes and kept the remaining ingredients the same. The only thing I would do differently is thickly slice the potatoes so it easier to tell when they are done. The end-product turned out well and my step-son can now make mashed potatoes whenever he wants them. Thanks.
