Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes

Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds Yukon gold potatoes
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 3/4 - 1 cup whole milk
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Begin by washing and peeling the potatoes. If they are large cut them into small, about 2-inch sized chunks. If they are on the smaller size, cut them in half.

  2. Place the potatoes in a large stockpot and cover with cold water, making sure they are completely submerged by at least 2 inches. Add a large handful of salt.

  3. Bring up to a boil on medium heat then turn down to a simmer. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. When you insert a knife it should come out smoothly without any pull.

  4. Drain the potatoes and place back into the cooking pot with the butter and 3/4's cup of milk. Mash with a hand masher or hand mixer until smooth and fluffy. If they feel too thick add the remaining milk. Season with salt and pepper and check for flavor.

    Serve warm.
