  • Use a potato masher to mash potatoes and butter together in inner pot. NOTE: I did not have any water left in my pot, if you do, feel free to drain the potatoes and return to the pot. Use a hand mixer to whip potatoes, adding up to 1 cup of cream of milk to achieve your preferred texture. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
