3 pounds Idaho potatoes - peeled and cut into large pieces.
Place the potatoes in COLD water (cover the potatoes with the water)
and add a tsp salt and - bring to a boil and cook until tender.
Drain well and place back into the pan.
Toss about 4-6 tablespoons of salted butter along with about a cup (we use a bit more) of
sour cream (don't use the non fat stuff).
Sometimes we'll add a bit of warm milk to the potatoes to increase the creaminess.
We use our mixing bowl beaters rather than a potato masher to mix up the potatoes.
When it's all mixed up and nice and creamy - we transfer the creamy mashed potatoes into a big bowl add a big dollop of butter and a dash of paprika.
