Add To Pot


Place a lid on the pot, turn the heat up and bring the pot up to a boil. Continue to boil the potatoes for 6-7 minutes, or until tender. If there is any firmness left in the potatoes, your mashed potatoes will not be smooth. You can test the doneness by piercing the potatoes with a fork.
