  • In a large saucepan add enough water to cover the potatoes by an inch. Add salt and bring to a boil. Cook potatoes until they slip off a knife inserted into the center, about 30 minutes. Drain.
  • Using a potato masher or ricer, mash about half the potatoes in the pot. Add the milk and butter. Continue mashing until smooth.
  • Season with Kosher salt and pepper to taste.
