Finally, Mashed Potatoes

     I don't know about you, but I can never make mashed potatoes! They are either too lumpy or too runny. No flavor or too much salt. I just can't seem to get it right.
     Finally, a couple of weeks ago I found a recipe that works for us. Of course, I changed it a little...and we love it! They are just the right amount of seasonings and texture.
     I found the recipe in a PTO fundraiser cookbook from the school where my Mamaw used to work. I love that cookbook!
Estimated cost: potatoes $0.50, milk $0.07 $0.57

 4 potatoes, 
1/2 cup milk, 
1-1/2 tsp salt, 
1/4 cup butter, 
1/4 tsp pepper
....and my own addition: chopped chives from our garden
  • Peel and quarter potatoes
  • Cook in boiling water, covered, for about 15 minutes or until tender. Drain
  • Mash with potato masher or mixer. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. 
  • Serve hot.
