Yield: 8 servings
|2 pounds||Baking potatoes, cubed|
|4 tablespoons||Butter, softened|
|1 cup||Milk, warmed|
|⅛ tablespoon||Pepper, ground|
Bring pot of water and ½ teaspoon salt to boil. Drop in potato chunks. Cook until tender, about 15 minutes, depending on size of potato chunks. Drain and allow potatoes to set for 2 minutes. Return to warm, dry saucepan over medium-low heat. Toss potatoes for about 2 minutes more, then remove from heat and mash potatoes with a fork (or put through a food mill or ricer). Using a wire whisk, hand-held mixer of potato masher, beat in butter and milk 2-3 tablespoons at a time.
Season with additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately or keep warm in top half of a double boiler.
