Mashed Potatoes

Check out this video by Alton Brown on how to make perfect mashed potatoes

However. If you don't have a food mill you have my permission to use a potato masher. We happen to like rustic style lumpy mashed potatoes over here and that's what I'll be using come turkey day.

Mashed potatoes can be put in the crockpot on low to keep warm or you can put the covered bowl over a pot of water that has come to the boiling point(turn heat to low or off) for about an hour. Or put hot foods in an ice chest to hold until dinner. I wouldn't do this for longer than an hour or two though.

  1. I like the more rustic style also. In a pinch, you an mash those potatoes with the bottom of a can.
