Directions:

  1. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and add water to cover.
  2. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and can easily be pierced with a fork.
  3. Drain the potatoes and return to the pan.
  4. With a potato masher, mash the potatoes with the milk, adding more if necessary to get a smooth consistency.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.
Tips:
  • Yukon Gold potatoes have such a buttery taste and texture that no added fat is needed. You can easily make these into garlic mashed potatoes by boiling 6 peeled garlic cloves with the potatoes and mashing the garlic along with the potatoes.
