Ingredients
  • 5 pounds medium red skinned potatoes
  • Salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Pepper
Directions
  • Peel the potatoes and cut them in 1-inch cubes. Place the potatoes in a pressure cooker with water to cover and a tablespoon of salt and cook over medium heat until tender, for about 5 minutes. You can also cook the potatoes in a saucepan, bring to boil and reduce to simmer until tender, for about 30 minutes.

  • Drain the potatoes and transfer them into the bowl of an electric mixer. Add the butter and milk and whip the potatoes to a smooth texture, about 5 minutes. You shouldn't see any lumps. If you do, keep mixing. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

  • Cook's Note: Pressure cookers save a ton of time in the kitchen. You can also cook the potatoes in a pot but the pressure cooker cuts the cook time of the potatoes from 30 minutes to 5 minutes!
