1
teaspoon salt
2
tablespoons butter, if desired
Dash pepper
1/4
cup hot milk

Steps

  • 2 Return potatoes to saucepan; shake saucepan gently over low heat for 1 to 2 minutes to evaporate any excess moisture.
  • 3 Mash potatoes with potato masher until no lumps remain. Add margarine, pepper and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; continue mashing, gradually adding enough milk to make potatoes smooth and creamy.
