After pouring off the water, place all of your potatoes in a large bowl and add salt to taste.

You can determine how many potatoes you are using for your recipe by looking at the bottom of the skin. If you see a significant amount of string, then use fewer potatoes and more milk.

Next, add your low-fat milk, stir your potatoes until they are completely coated with milk, and place them in a large bowl. Add salt to taste. Let them sit for about fifteen minutes, flipping them occasionally to ensure even cooking. Once done, drain them on a separate plate and add salt to taste. Allow them to cool and then enjoy!
