Serves 8

2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, (about 6 large potatoes), peeled and cubed

Place the potatoes in a large saucepan with cold water to cover. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook 20 to 25 minutes, or until fork tender. Drain.

Place the butter, a third of the milk and a third of the potatoes in a large bowl. Mash with a hand held masher until smooth. Repeat with potatoes and milk, and mash again. Finish the remaining potatoes and milk and season with the salt. Serve immediately.
