We used this recipe at Thanksgiving, it was wonderful! The secret is evaporated milk.
2 - 3 potatoes per person
1 12-oz. can evaporated milk (unsweetened)
4 Tbl. butter
salt and pepper
1. Boil salted water, add potatoes (small cubes cook faster and mash easier).
2. Drain when tender, usually 15 - 20 minutes.
3. Mash potatoes, add butter.
4. Add evaporated milk gradually, until desired consistency is reached (whole can may or may not be used).
5. Add salt and pepper to taste.
