Momma's Mashed Potatoes Recipe
- 2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)
- 1 egg white
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
- salt and black pepper to taste
step 1: Place potatoes and lemon juice in a large saucepan, and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and cook until tender, about 15 minutes.
step 2: Drain water from potatoes, and use a potato masher to mash. Stir in egg white and butter, and gradually mix in the half-and-half using the masher. Use more or less cream to reach your desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
