– 4 Large Russet or Yukon Gold Potatoes
– 4 Tbsp of Salted Butter at room temperature or Dairy Free Vegan Butter
– Salt & Pepper To Taste – (I add 1/2 to 1 tsp of salt to the mashed potatoes and one tsp of salt to the pan of water when I boil the potatoes.)
Bring the pot of potatoes to a boil and cook for 15 to 18 minutes or until they’re completely soft. Once the potatoes are finished cooking, use a colander bowl to drain the water and return the potatoes to the pot.
