Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes

These mashed potatoes are fluffy, buttery, and ready to be smothered in gravy!

Ingredients: serves 8
4 lbs. Yukon Gold potatoes
3 t. salt
1.5 cups whole milk
1 stick unsalted butter
1/4 t. pepper

Directions: Peel potatoes and dice into 1" pieces. Bring to a boil in a large saucepan, covered with cold water and 1 t. salt. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until the potatoes are tender (10-15 minutes). Drain potatoes in a colander, then return to the pan and let dry out for 1-2 minutes over the heat. Add the milk, butter, pepper, and salt and gently stir, then smashing using a masher until they are just smooth (there will be some lumps). Do not overwork, or potatoes will become gummy. Serve immediately.
