I love creamy mashed potatoes.  Mashed potatoes are a great side next to most proteins and it is easy to make.  There’s so many ways to make mashed potatoes and there’s so many different potatoes to choose from.  I prefer Yukon gold potatoes for their natural creaminess and their beautiful golden color.  Yukon potatoes are also best for gratin dishes and potato salads.  You can swap this potato recipe with Russell if you like a more starchy potato.

Add heavy cream instead of milk if you prefer a creamier mashed potato.  Add sauteed onions or garlic for a kick or variation.
