Mom’s Amazing Mashed Potatoes

Mom's Amazing Mashed Potatoes | Making the Most Blog

Before I begin, I have to say this recipe is by no means new around our house.  My mom has made these potatoes ever since I can remember.  I’ve been making this dish since college, and it’s always a great success with everyone who tries it (well, except for Princess Anna, but we don’t count her when we talk about food-ha!).  It wasn’t until recently, however, that I actually sat down to make a paper recipe out of this idea though.  This is one of those fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants recipes that I just had to post, and telling you to dump some butter in and a little bit of salt just won’t cut it.  So I actually put a recipe to it, and oh my goodness they were better than ever!  As always I won’t waste your time.  Just enjoy!

Here’s what you need:

  • 8 small potatoes
  • 1 1/4 c. milk
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 Tbsp. salt
  • 1/2 c. butter

Here’s what you do:

  • Rinse and peel all potatoes
  • Cut potatoes into 1-inch cubes or smaller
  • Add all potatoes to large pot
  • Add enough water to just cover the top layer of the potatoes
  • Bring to a boil
  • After water has begun to boil, cook for 10 minutes or until potatoes fall apart easily when poked with a fork
  • Drain
  • Return potatoes to pot or pour into mixing bowl
  • Add remainder of ingredients
  • Beat with electric mixer for 3-5 minutes on medium speed
  • Serve

I’d love to hear how your potatoes turned out!  Feel free to share your results in the comments below!
