If you like the classic, creamy taste of a simple, made-from-scratch mashed potatoes recipe, then you're going to love Grandma's Country Mashed Potatoes. This amazing side dish is a great example of why we love it when Grandma's in the kitchen!

What You'll Need

  • 4 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Place potatoes in a soup pot with just enough water to cover. Place lid loosely on pot, bring to a boil over high heat, and cook 20 to 25 minutes, or until fork-tender. Using the lid, drain potatoes and place pot back on heat 1 minute to make sure all water is gone.
  2. Add remaining ingredients; beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Serve immediately.

This is the only way I have ever made my mashed potatoes. The only difference is I mash my potatoes first with lots of butter. Butter will melt on its own when you put it in your hot potatoes. After mashing then you use the mixer to cream potatoes. Don't need buttermilk if you use enough butter.
