Ingredients
 

  • 2 pounds russet potatoes washed
  • 1/2 to 1 cup whole or 2% milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter (1 stick)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line large rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  • Wash and dry potatoes. Place in a single layer on baking sheet and bake until soft when lightly squeezed, about 1 hour. Rest on pan until cool enough to handle.
  • Cut potatoes in half and scoop out potatoes into a large bowl. Whip potatoes with an electric hand mixer or mash with a potato masher. Add milk, salt, pepper and butter to the bowl. Stir until butter is melted and ingredients are blended.
  • Cover with plastic and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Heat in microwave or large saucepan over medium heat. Top with more butter and chives before serving.

To Freeze:

  • Prepare mashed potatoes according to recipe instructions. Transfer to foil pan or other freezer-safe container. Cover, label and freeze up to 3 months. Thaw in refrigerator before re-heating according to step 4.
