  • 2.5 lbs Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and chopped in chunks
  • 2.5 cups water
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • fresh parsley, optional


  • Place chopped potatoes in a medium pot, add water and cook on high heat on the stove. When they start boiling, cook for 5 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for another 20 minutes.
  • Remove pot from the stove and discard the water. Add butter, milk, salt and black pepper to the potatoes and mix with the mixer on high speed until potatoes are creamy.
  • Serve warm.


It is not necessary that you completely cover the potatoes with water. 2.5 cups should be enough to cook them if the pot is covered with a lid. Otherwise, if you use too much water, they may turn too watery.
