Foolproof Traditional Mashed Potatoes

Foolproof Traditional Mashed Potatoes created by lazyme

This is a recipe for simple, tasty, perfect and traditional mashed potatoes. I found that I always made potatoes and had to eyeball ingredients and keep tasting and tasting to get perfect results. This recipe is about as perfect as I could find. My family really likes traditional potatoes...no garlic, etc. This is the one for us. Hope you like it too.

    I loved these potatoes! I was wondering too about putting in so much milk. I'd pour a little, stir, then pour some more until it was all used and it was great! Thanks! Made for Kittencal's mini cookathon.

    Great potatoes! Very similar to my mashed potatoes but I usually don't add that much milk. I was a little hesitant about adding that much milk but they were great.
