Smashed Potatoes

I serve my potatoes mashed with the skin on. You get more vitamins and minerals from your spud that way! A friend used to call them "smashed" potatoes and the name kind of stuck.

Smashed Potatoes
2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes
1 stick of butter
1/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp pepper
dash or two of salt

Scrub and cube potatoes. Put them in a pan of water and bring them to a boil. Boil for about 15 minutes. Test with a fork...if they're hard then boil a few more minutes. Drain. Place a stick of butter in the pan and put the lid back on it so the heat melts the butter. Add milk, pepper, and salt. Smash the potatoes with a masher. Transfer to a pretty bowl if you wish! Enjoy!
