1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder or minced garlic

Bring potatoes to boil covered in water, until tender; about 20 minutes once boiling.


Place in large bowl or mixer using the paddle.

Start mixing on a medium speed, adding in all the ingredients.

Mix until desired consistency, adding in more milk if necessary. You can also twice cook these, by placing mashed potatoes into a baking pan and bake for about 10 minutes at 350'.

Serves 6-10. Total time is about 30 minutes.

This is one of my own recipes, with no exact measurements. I tweak it all the time. You pretty much can't go wrong with this, just make it as you desire. We like ours really creamy, so I might add more milk and really whip them in my mixer. This makes a lot of mashed potatoes too, so you can use less amount of potatoes if you like.

that sounds good i will have to try it
