Great recipe, only thing I would add is that rather than add the potato to boiling water, I was always taught to put the potatoes in cold water and bring to the boil. This way the centre of the potato pieces heat up at the same time as the outside and you don't get lumps in your mash.

Great mashed taters!!! I made this as a side to our roast beef dinner last night. Very simple and traditional recipe for creamy mashed potatoes. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT8.

My family loves mashed potatoes and this is a great recipe. We had this with bangers, our new discovery during ZWT. Made for Aus/NZ tag.

Thanks for posting the recipe. This was the first time I'd ever made homemade mashed potatoes so I appreciated a simple recipe online. I even made a vegan version for family with soy milk and it was delicious!

Great, traditional recipe for mashed potatoes! The only thing I did different was to heat up the potatoes in cold water rather than wait until the water was boiling and just used salt and pepper for seasoning. They turned out fabulous. Made for Aussie recipe swap.

Only one difference between how I was taught to make mashed potatoes and this recipe, we start out with cold water. Butter, salt & pepper, and skim milk is what we use and I agree with Jubes, no lumps in the taters! :) Made for Family Picks during ZWT8.

These mashed potatoes were perfect. The texture was spot on, smooth, creamy, flavorful, just wonderful. I did add some green onions to the mash and I also didn't peel all the potatoes they were new and we really enjoy them served this way. Thanks for sharing this tasty tasty dish. Made for the Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT -8 - Family Picks Round

Delicious classic recipe for mashed potatoes! They went great with the crockpot roast beef for dinner tonight. I have made them many times, and will make them many more! I used cream this time, but milk works great too! Made for ZWT8

These mashed potatoes are just delish, made as stated and the potatoes really get to shine along with a hint of butter/milk flavour. YUM. Made for ZWT 8
