Thanksgiving Mashed Potatoes
Boil the potatoes in salt water until they are fully cooked and soft.
Drain them thoroughly in a colander, the last thing that you want is watery potatoes.
While the potatoes are still hot mash them with a potato masher - until they are broken down to the consisteny of cooked oats.
Add the milk, butter and salt and pepper and continue mashing.
Do not use a blender to do this as the potato’s consistency will become gooey and sticky.
Serve garnished with a few sprigs of parsley.
A great guideline to determine how many potatoes to boil for Thanksgiving dinner is:
One large potato per person and a few extra in case people want seconds.
