  2. rinse and put in skillet

  3. pour olive oil on potatoes, add seasoning  of choice, and mix

  4. cover and bake at 350 for 25 minutes

  5. when fully cooked, move potatoes to bowl, mash and add milk and butter. (for thicker mashed potatoes don't mash and mix as much) 

Recipe Notes

I find that cooking the potatoes with seasoning, then mashing makes the difference in awesome tasting mashed potatoes.

The rest of the meal was steak and veggies, from Aldi's, which means I saved money.
