Your Own Homemade Healthy Mashed Potato

Now that we are done cooking / grilling our burger patties, be it pork or beef, we would need something to accompany it. While there are many choices we can choose from, we will do mashed potato today. Potatoes inherently have healthy amounts of fiber, protein and starchy carbohydrates, and in their basic form, they’re certified as a heart-healthy food by the American Heart Association. Although peeling them down and mashing them cuts those health benefits a little lower, it is undeniable that it is still healthy and good for your body.According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 1 cup of homemade mashed potatoes prepared with butter and whole milk contains about 240 calories, 4 grams of protein, 9 grams of fat, 35 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, 12.5 milligrams of vitamin C and 600 milligrams of potassium. If this works for you, then please feel free to continue on reading.

To start off, let's prepare the ingredients:

2 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and quartered
2 tablespoons butter

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes; drain.
In a small saucepan heat butter and milk over low heat until butter is melted. Using a potato masher or electric beater, slowly blend milk mixture into potatoes until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

That's it! Easy, isn't it? Enjoy your meal!
