Perfect Mashed Potatoes


2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks

½ cup (4 ounces) unsalted butter

¾ cup half-and-half

2 teaspoons kosher salt

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


1. Put the potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water.

2. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are very tender.

3. Meanwhile, heat the butter and half-and-half in a small saucepan over low heat.

4. Drain the potatoes and return to the pot. Mash up the potatoes a little with a potato masher. Add the melted butter mixture a little at a time and use the potato masher to combine. Once it has all been added, use a wooden spoon or spatula to give it a few stirs to combine completely. Serve immediately.
