  • 4 pounds russet potatoes peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 8 tablespoons butter cut into 8 pieces
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • Place potatoes in a colander and rinse under cold water for 1 minute. Drain.
  • Fill a Dutch oven with 1 inch of water and place a steamer basket inside. Add potatoes to steamer basket, place Dutch oven over high heat with lid on top until water comes to a boil. Once water comes to a boil, reduce heat to medium and cook 20 to 25 minutes, until potatoes are fork tender.
  • While potatoes are cooking, place milk, butter, salt, and pepper in a medium saucepan and heat over medium-low until butter is melted. Keep warm.
  • Drain potatoes and return to Dutch oven. Place over low heat to evaporate any water.
  • Place potatoes in the bowl of an electric mixer and using a whisk attachment, turn mixer on LOW for 30 seconds to break up potatoes.
  • With mixer on LOW, slowly add milk mixture.
  • Once milk mixture has been added, turn mixer to HIGH for about 2 minutes, until no lumps remain. Serve.
