Every once in a while it’s nice to have mashed potatoes.  Especially when you are making something with a little pan gravy, like roast beef, roasted chicken or Swedish meatballs.  Yukons make beautiful golden mashed potatoes.

  • 2 pounds Yukon golds, rinsed and quatered

  • water to cover

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 2 to 4 tablespoons butter

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup milk, cream or buttermilk

Boil potatoes in water with 2 teaspoons salt till fork tender.

Drain potatoes, reserving about 1/2 cup of water.

Using the trusty potato masher, mash potatoes.  Add butter, 1 teaspoon salt, and the milk.

Add some of the reserved water if needed, to make a fluffier mashed potato.

Delicious!
