Classic Mashed Potatoes

For perfect mashed potatoes, start with starchy russet potatoes. Do not overcook them or the mashed potatoes will be watery. Use a potato masher or if you have one, a ricer, for mashing. Add warm half-and half for richness. Use this recipe as a starting point then try the variations to season the potatoes with herbs, spices, cheese and more.
