I threw this recipe together a few years ago and it's been a pretty standard one for making mashed potatoes around here the few, rare times it happens. It's not low carb but it's yummy.
12 oz Large Russet Potato
4 tbsp Butter cut up
1/2 cup whole milk
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Italian Spices
Peel potato and cut up into small pieces. Fill medium size pot with enough water to cover the potatoes and heat on high until boiling. Lower the heat to medium-low and cook covered for about 40 minutes checking on the potatoes toward the end by piercing them with a butter knife. When the knife goes through the pieces easily and the pieces come apart, the potatoes are done.
Drain the water and mash the potatoes with a masher. Add the butter, milk and spices and continue mashing/blending until you get it to the way you like it.
Eat and enjoy! This recipe makes 3 servings.
