The Best Mashed Potatoes

Mashed Potato
Method: 

Wash and peel the potatoes and cut into small chunks for quicker cooking.
Place the potatoes in a saucepan with just enough water to cover them.
Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
Drain the potatoes. Meanwhile, bring the milk to the boil in a small saucepan.
Pour the warmed milk over the potatoes and mash until smooth.
Season to taste and serve immediately – great with bangers!

Tip

You can add other ingredients such as garlic or mustard for extra taste to make a quick and tasty meal even tastier
