Homestyle Mashed Potatoes
5 large potatoes
1/3 cup evaporated milk, or heavy cream
4 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper to taste
Peel the potatoes, cut into chunks and rinse in cold water, then place into a medium sized pot. Cover with fresh water.
Place the pan over medium high heat and boil until tender. This usually takes about 15 minutes once the water is boiling. Drain potatoes well.
Add the milk, butter and seasonings.
Using a hand masher, mash the potatoes until all ingredients are combined. Add a bit more milk if potatoes are to dry. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.
