Simple Mashed Potatoes

Ingredients are 100% organic, yet 0% good for you

I made this simple meal for dinner tonight. The highlight of the meal for my husband was the mashed potatoes, which he claims are his favorite. I know mashed potatoes are the easiest thing ever to make, but I'm recording this recipe here for my own notes.

yukon gold potatoes
whole milk
unsweetened butter
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
Chopped scallions (optional)
1. Quarter about 5 yukon gold potatoes, and throw in boiling water. Boil for approximately 10 minutes, until fork-tender.
2. Remove potatoes from heat and drain, keeping them in the pot. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or fork, adding a quarter cup of whole milk at a time until it reaches the desired consistency.
3. Add about half a stick of butter (or 4 tablespoons), to taste. Add kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
4.If you like the flavor of onions, chop scallions and mix them in with the potatoes. Serves 4.
