Make mashed potatoes just like Cracker Barrel.
- 2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes
- 4 tablespoons margarine
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
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 each not peeled. Place potatoes into a bowl with the other ingredients and mash the potatoes. I would not use an electric mixer; you do not want to take out all of the lumps. Transfer the whipped potatoes to a serving dish, and serve the mashed potatoes.
