Ingredients

4
medium russet or Idaho baking potatoes (about 1 1/2 lb.), peeled, cut into quarters
1
teaspoon salt
2
tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1
tablespoon margarine or butter
2
teaspoons chopped fresh basil or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/4
to 1/2 cup milk

Directions

  1. 1 Place potatoes in large saucepan; add enough water to cover. Add 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover loosely and boil gently for 15 to 20 minutes or until potatoes break apart easily when pierced with fork. Drain well.
  2. 2 Return potatoes to saucepan; shake saucepan gently over low heat for 1 to 2 minutes to evaporate any excess moisture.
  3. 3 Mash potatoes with potato masher until no lumps remain. Add parsley, margarine, basil and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Continue mashing, gradually adding enough milk until potatoes are smooth and creamy.
