Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes
Anyway, this will forever be my only mashed potato recipe. I’m done researching and testing; this is the only one you need. And really, it’s not rocket science. Good mashed potatoes have one thing in common: fat.
- 5 lb Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and boiled
- 1.5-2 cups whole milk
- 1.5 sticks butter
- Lots of salt and pepper
After boiling the potatoes until fork tender, drain and keep them over medium-low heat to dry out a bit. When most of the water/steam has escaped, mash them and mix in all ingredients. Serve immediately, or put in a bowl to serve later (and reserve a bit of stock or potato water to mix in before reheating).
