This is a wee bit different from what zabethebabe posted, hence the name…
Mashed Potatoes II
2 1/2 lb potatoes, peeled, cut in chunks3/4 to 1 cup milk or light cream
4 to 6 tbs of butter, or to taste
salt and pepper, to taste
Rinse the peeled potato chunks.
Put them in crockpot.
Add a bit of water, enough to coat the bottom of the crockpot.
Cook on high for 4-5 hours, or until the potatoes are tender.
If necessary, transfer to a larger bowl for mashing.
Warm 3/4 cup of milk with 4 tbs of butter in the microwave until the butter is melted or nearly melted.
If desired, put the potatoes through a ricer before mashing.
Add the milk mixture to the hot potatoes and mash with a hand masher or portable mixer.
If using an electric mixer, don’t overmix. Add more milk and butter as needed.
Taste and add salt and pepper. Blend well.
Makes 6 servings
