4. Add potatoes to dish

To make these truly one pot potatoes, find an oven safe casserole dish about 8 inches round and 4 inches deep. This allows for plenty of space for cooking and mashing with liquid.

7. Mash

Use a hand held potato masher (“S” shape masher used here) and thoroughly mash all potatoes. Use a rubber spatula to clean vessel edges. At the half way mark, there should be a substantial amount of liquid still. Keep mashing and stirring.

8. Season

Add salt and pepper. Taste and adjust.

9. Keep warm

Need to finish up dinner? Place back in the oven to keep warm. When tested, even after 45 minutes, these tasted perfect.
