To start, peel and cut your potatoes into about 1/2 -1 inch cubes. Place them into a large pot and wash the starch off until the water runs clear. Fill the pot with cold water to fully submerse the potatoes. Add a dash of salt.
Boil the potatoes for about 15 minutes or until they are fork tender. Drain the potatoes and add milk, butter, and salt.
Using an electric hand mixer, beat the potatoes on high until they start to form peaks. If the potatoes still seem thick and need to be creamer, add additional milk. Also add additional salt to taste. (You can also mash them with a potato masher.)
