I’m not sure why its taken me this long to try Mark Bittman’s mashed potatoes. Maybe because its such a simple thing.
Last week I made pot roast for the first time. It just seemed natural to make mashed potatoes to go with it.
Start off by boiling your potatoes. When done, drain. Melt butter and warm milk in the drained pot, then add your potatoes back for mashing. At this point I veered from the recipe. I just added milk, butter, cheese, and salt to it satisfied my taste buds. I don’t think you could mess mashed potatoes up. Unless you over salt them.
