Russet Potatoes

Key Ingredient


1. Cook your potatoes. Add your peeled and chopped potatoes to a large stalk pot and cover them with water. You want the water level to be about 1-2 inches above the potatoes. Add salt to the water and cook the potatoes until fork-tender.


2. Drain your potatoes if you do not want any water in your Perfect Mashed Potatoes. Once you drain your potatoes, let them sit in the collider for a few minutes to let the excess water drain out.


3. In the same pot, turn the heat to low and add your butter, heavy cream, and milk. Once the butter is melted, Rice Press your potatoes back into the pot. It's important to do these while potatoes are hot they mash easier, which means smooth and creamy potatoes.
