Herb Mashed Potatoes

I love mashed potatoes, and cannot wait until Thanksgiving! It's the perfect side dish for any comfort food!
  • 7 - 8 russet potatoes cleaned & peeled
  • 1 cup 1% milk
  • 6 tablespoons butter - I used Earth Balance Soy Butter Spread
  • Sea Salt 
  • Pepper 
  • 1 Tablespoon Tarragon 

  1. After cleaning, and peeling the potatoes I let them soak in cold water for about an hour.
  2. Next, I added ground sea salt to the water, and boiled for about 20 - 30 minutes (until soft).
  3. After draining the potatoes, I took a fork and cut the potatoes into half to make it easier to blend with the mixer.  
  4. Add milk, butter, salt & pepper, and tarragon.  I didn't measure the salt and pepper, I just added, and then tasted the potatoes as I was blending.  
  5. Mix the potatoes on low speed until they are nice and fluffy.  

xoxo, p&c
