Now onto today's recipe.

Yesterday we had a family dinner, which meant I needed to make something to feed about 20 people. I was in charge of potatoes and I had to come up with a yummy recipe to feed the whole brood. I asked hubby for his request and he choose creamy ranch potatoes. I hadn't made these in a while. I forgot how simple and delicious these are too make. Not only was hubby happy with his request, but the whole family too! These will be a great addition to your next family dinner or BBQ.

Creamy Ranch Mashed Potatoes

8-10 russet potatoes
1 ranch seasoning packet
1 cup milk
1/3 cup butter

Boil potatoes till soft. I leave the skins on, but feel free to peel before cooking if you prefer. Once potatoes are cooked, drain the water and place potatoes in a large bowl. Using a potato masher, mash potatoes a few times. Then add butter. Your butter will melt as you continue mashing. You can also use a stand or hand mixer to get that super creamy texture. Next add 1 cup of milk and continue mashing or mixing till blended well. Add ranch packet and continue mashing/mixing till seasoning is incorporated and desired texture is reached. I love creamy mashed potatoes, so I whip mine with my Kitchenaid. Either way, lumpy or smooth, your ranch mashed potatoes will not disappoint.

*you can reserve some potato water and make potato rolls or bread. Yum!
*keeping the potato skins on gives your family the extra iron that they carry :) 
*Use leftover mashed potatoes to make potato cakes! 
*I cook my potatoes in the pressure cooker to speed up cooking time.
