Making perfect mashed potatoes isn’t hard at all, and homemade mashed potatoes are simply…well….MAGICAL! C’mon in and find out what my secret ingredient is!
One of my favorite hobbies is simply experimenting in the kitchen. That’s exactly how my Magical & Homemade Perfect Mashed Potatoes recipe came about – simply playing around with flavors in the kitchen. This recipe for perfect mashed potatoes is a game changer!
I have always loved homemade mashed potatoes. They are a warm comfort food that reminds me of family gatherings, and I love the lumpiness and texture that perfect mashed potatoes have. Besides, you can’t have a respectable meat loaf dinner, roast chicken, or turkey without a side of perfect mashed potatoes.
Now the stuff in the box isn’t legit ya’ll. It’s just not, no matter how much you try and turn it around! Sure they are quick to make, but, you just don’t feel good about them after you’ve popped them in your mouth.
Are homemade mashed potatoes worth the extra time to make?
Trust me on this, PLEASE!
Spend a few extra minutes in the kitchen and whip up this Perfect Mashed Potatoes recipe. If you find that you don’t like it better than that boxed stuff, then I’ll happily pay you for a few boxes for your pantry. 😉 Seriously ya’ll!

How to Make Perfect Mashed Potatoes

- 1/2 C Milk
- Remove the vast majority of the potato skin.
- Cut potatoes into quarters and place in pot with water.
- Boil potatoes 15 minutes until tender with a fork.
- Place potatoes back in large pot to add butter, milk, seasoning salt and butter.
