Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Mashed Potatoes
Notes: If you want really great tasting mashed potatoes, do not boil them, bake them. Baking brings out a wonderful roasted taste.
Ingredients: 6 medium Russet Potatoes 4 Tbsp. Margarine (yes Margarine do not use "spread") 1/4 to 1/2 C. Milk 1 tsp. Salt 1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
Preparation: Wash potatoes thoroughly, cut into uniform pieces, and drop into salted boiling water. Cook potatoes until they are fork tender. Take potatoes out of boiling water and drain. Peel most of the potatoes, make sure you leave about one fifth of the area not peeled. Place potatoes into bowl with other ingredients and mash the potatoes. I would not use an electric mixer; you do not want to take all of the lumps out, if you do, just be careful not to totally mash the potatoes. Makes 4 servings.
