  • Thoroughly wash your potatoes in the sink.
  • Peel your potatoes leaving the desired amount of skin on the potato. Remove all the skin if you would like.
  • Using a knife and cutting board, cut the potatoes into smaller pieces. (This will allow the potatoes to cook more evenly and quickly)

  • After water has drained well place the potatoes back into the large pot.
  • Add butter or margarine along with milk to the cooked potatoes.
  • Mix well with wire whisk or electric whisk until the desired consistency is reached.
  • Using a rubber spatula, fold in the salt and pepper and stir well to incorporate.
