Homestyle Mashed Potatoes


5 lb red potatoes
1/2 cube butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk
2 tsp salt
1 tsp crushed red pepper

Wash and cut the potatoes into pieces, leaving the skins on. Cook in a small amount of water – just until tender. Drain the water. Using a potato masher, mash potatoes with butter, milk, and seasonings until fluffy.

Garnish with fresh parsley.

Skinny Version: Reduce butter to 2 Tbsp and use fat-free milk.
