What's in it


6 medium potatoes (any variety)

1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

How to cook it


  • Place the potatoes in a medium pot, and then add water – just enough to cover the potatoes
  • Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat slightly and continue to boil for 15 minutes
  • Drain the potatoes and set them aside. Place the pot back on the stove and reduce heat to low
  • Add the butter and milk to the same pot used for the potatoes
  • Once the butter has mostly melted, add in the salt and pepper, and then the potatoes
  • Using a hand-held mixer on low, whip together the potatoes, milk and butter. After about 30 seconds, increase the mixer speed to medium-high and continue whipping for one more minute
  • Serve hot with gravy or butter
