This recipe for mashed potatoes is courtesy of singer Trisha Yearwood.
Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, and cook until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, about 30 minutes. Drain potatoes.
Warm milk in a small saucepan over medium heat; stir in butter until incorporated.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat potatoes on low speed. Slowly add milk mixture, beating potatoes just until liquid is absorbed. Season mashed potatoes with salt and pepper.
