How to Make the Mashed Potatoes
Peel 2 lb./900 g (about 4) baking potatoes; add to large saucepan of boiling water. Cook 20 to 25 min. or until tender. Drain potatoes, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Return potatoes to pan; mash until smooth. For extra creamy potatoes, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking water to the potatoes when mashing them.
For a change of pace, substitute cottage cheese for the mashed potatoes.
