Basic Mashed Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 6 cups (1.5 liters) Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks (about 8 potatoes)
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) butter
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) milk, approximately
  • Salt and pepper

Preparation

  1. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the potatoes with the garlic until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain.
  2. With a potato masher, crush the potatoes and garlic with the butter. Then, purée the potatoes and milk with an electric mixer. Season with salt and pepper. Alternatively, you can use buttermilk instead of milk and add some chopped fresh chives.
