Mashed Potatoes

What could be easier to cook than mashed potatoes?


  • 1 ½ lb potatoes (I like Yukon gold since it cooks faster and because of its pretty yellow color), peel and dice in relatively the same pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup warm milk (do not add cold milk because potatoes become gray)


  • Place potatoes into a saucepan. Add the salt and then cover with water
  • Bring to boil, reduce heat
  • Cook for 20-25 minutes or until done (when poked with a fork, potatoes should fall apart).
  • Drain water from potatoes
  • Put hot potatoes into a bowl
  • Add butter and half of the milk
  • Use potato masher to mash potatoes until well mashed
  • Gradually add the rest of the milk to achieve the consistency you desire. Mash potatoes again until there are no chunks of potatoes.
