3 or 4 large baking potatoes
milk or cream
Wash and peel potatoes, cut lengthwise into quarters. Place potatoes in a pan covered with water and a little salt. Boil for about 20 minutes or until when you stick a knife they feel tender. Drain. I set them back on the burner with the burner off, for a couple of minutes to make sure all the water is evaporated. Then with your mixer beat the potatoes until all the lumps are gone. Add 3 T. butter and a little salt. Then add in the milk or cream to lighten them a bit. Place potatoes in a serving dish and serve immediately.
