Mashed Red Potatoes Recipe

These yummy, chunky mashed potatoes from our home economists are rich enough to stand on their own. But they’re also delicious with cheese, bacon and sour cream…or heartier options, like Florets with Cheese Sauce and Dressed-Up Beef Tips.

  • 4-1/2 pounds red potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
