Directions

  1. Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  2. Over warm burner or very low heat, stir potatoes for 1-2 minutes or until steam is evaporated. Press through a potato ricer or strainer into a small bowl; cool slightly. In a Dutch oven, bring 3 qts. water to a boil.

Reviewed Jan. 10, 2014

Since I did not own a ricer, I used a potato masher and then a fork, fluffing the potatoes as I went.
