Peel your potatoes and cut them into 1 or 1.5 inch chunks. Put them in your pot, add water to cover plus about 1 inch above the potatoes. Gently boil for about 25-30 minutes or until you can easily push a fork through the potatoes.
You will need a mixer with a flat and whisk beater for this recipe.
After your potatoes have cooked, drain them and place them in your mixer bowl with the flat beater. Turn the mixer on low and mix for 1 minute or until the potatoes are relatively smooth.
Add the remaining ingredients.
Turn to speed 4 or medium/medium low for 30 seconds to allow the milk to absorb.
Turn the mixer up to speed 6 or medium/medium high for 1 minute. Seriously, time these things, it makes a difference in how they turn out.
Switch to your whisk beater and scrape the bowl down. This is also a great time to taste the potatoes and adjust for any additional salt or pepper needed.
Turn you mixer to speed 10 or high and whisk the potatoes for 3 minutes.
It is important to time as you go, the times really make a difference in the potatoes coming out light and fluffy. You are done! Easy and sooo delicious.
