9 medium white potatoes
6 Tablespoons butter or margarine
¾ cup hot milk or 6 Tablespoons evaporated milk
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Makes 6 servings
1. Boil scrubbed potatoes in 1 inch boiling salted water in covered saucepan, for 35-40 minutes, or until tender. Drain.
2. Peel, place over low heat 1 or 2 minutes, to dry out, shaking pan gently.
3. Mash thoroughly, using a potato masher, until no lumps remain. Or use an electric beater.
4. While mashing or beating gradually add enough of the combined butter and milk to make potatoes fluffy and creamy. Season to taste.
