2. Ingredients for Easy Mashed Potatoes

  • 4 lb. russet potatoes (5 to 6 large potatoes)
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 6 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground white pepper (or black pepper)
  • 1/3 cup fresh chives (chopped)

3. Directions:

3.1 Prep

Peel the potatoes and cut into 1 inch pieces.

3.2 Stove

Transfer potatoes to a Dutch oven and add enough cold water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and drain in a colander.

Meanwhile, combine the milk, butter, salt, and pepper in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until milk is warm and butter melts, about 2 minutes.

3.3 Prep

Combine the potatoes and milk mixture in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on medium-low speed with the paddle attachment until potatoes are fluffy, 2-3 minutes.

Add the chives and beat until incorporated, about 20 seconds longer.

3.4 Serve

Transfer potatoes to a bowl and serve.
