Here are a few mashed potato tips.
Cut up the potatoes, they boil faster.
Leave the skins on if you can stand it, it is healthier.
Don’t let the potato water go down the drain, save the water for making potato bread.
After you boil the potatoes and drain (but save) the water, put the potatoes back on the stove, on low, for about a minute or two. You will see steam rising from the cooked potatoes. This keeps your mashed potatoes from being watery.
Did you know you can substitute sour cream for milk in mashed potatoes?
Add some roasted garlic or minced garlic to the potatoes for some yummy garlic mashed potatoes.
