Mashed Potatoes

  • servings: 12

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch-thick slices
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 cup whole milk, or heavy cream, or a combination
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • Freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Put potatoes in a large saucepan, and cover with cold water. Add 2 tablespoons salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain potatoes in a colander.

  2. Step 2

    Heat milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Press the potatoes through a ricer into a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water; stir until smooth. Pour in warm milk in a slow, steady stream, stirring constantly. Stir in butter, and season with salt and pepper
