2 pounds Russett Idaho potatoes
1 cup hot half-and-half or whole milk
4 tablespoons butter
ground black pepper


Place whole potatoes in large pot with cold salted water to cover. Bring to boil over high heat then simmer, covered, until potatoes are just tender (about twenty minutes). Drain. Peel potatoes and put through food mill or ricer into a warm, dry saucepan.

Heat milk and butter in small saucepan until warm and butter is melted. Pour milk/butter mixture into potatoes and mix well. Generously season with lots of pepper and serve.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I'm really surprised that the review by the "little girl" was allowed to go through. It clearly shouldn't be here and reflect negatively on what is a very good and simple recipe. I've never eaten at Another Pointe in Thyme but I can say that this recipe is delicious and the garlic and onion DO go together (seriously - have you never eaten FOOD? those are very commonly paired). Please, ignore that other review (and site mods, please consider removing it completely).
