  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat (2%) milk
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  • Place the potatoes in a large saucepan. Add enough water so they are covered by at least 1 inch. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt. 
  • Turn the heat to high and bring the water to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender, 10 - 15 minutes. 
  • Drain well.
  • Add the milk and oil to the potatoes. With a potato masher or electric mixer, mash the potatoes until they are smooth.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings, adding more salt and pepper, as necessary.
