Mashed Potatoes


  • 5 large potatoes (about 2 1/2 pounds), peeled, quartered and boiled
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk, heated
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


  1. 1. Warm mixer bowl and flat beater with hot water; dry. Place hot potatoes in bowl. Attach bowl and flat beater to the KitchenAid® Stand Mixer. Gradually turn to Speed 2 and mix until smooth, about 1 minute.

    2. Add all remaining ingredients. Turn to Speed 4 and beat until milk is absorbed, about 30 seconds. Gradually turn to Speed 6 and beat until fluffy, about 1 minute. Stop and scrape bowl. Exchange flat beater for wire whip. Turn to Speed 10 and whip 2 to 3 minutes.

    Garlic Mashed Potatoes: Substitute 1 teaspoon garlic salt for salt.

    Parmesan Mashed Potatoes: Increase milk to 3/4 cup. Add 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese with milk.

    Sour Cream-Chive Mashed Potatoes: Substitute 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream for 1/4 cup milk. Add 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives.
