2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced, at room temperature
1/3 cup buttermilk, at room temperature
1/3 cup whole milk
Freshly ground white pepper
1 3/4 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, whole with skin, scrubbed
Use Yukon Gold potatoes for the buttery yellow color and rich nutty taste. Boiling the potatoes with the peel on intensifies their potato flavor. Be careful when adding gravy to your mashed potatoes; it is a major source of hidden fats.
