Real Mashed Potatoes

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

I have lived away from home for the past 6 years. 

And if I ever ate mashed potatoes in that time, it was usually out of a packet. And some of my friends had never had mashed potatoes except from out of a packet.
That did it for me! I had to share this recipe for the real thing. This is my mothers recipe, and it is loved by all. I hope that you guys will try it again and again like I do.

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Potatoes
2. Milk
3. Cheese
4. Butter
5. Salt and Pepper

Bismillah, let's begin!

Peel 9 Potatoes, and cut into chunks. Wash the potatoes and drain.

Boil the potatoes in a pan of water until they are soft.

Drain the potatoes and put them back into the same pan and keep it on a low heat.

Add 1/4 cup (60ml) Milk to the potatoes.

Add 2 tablespoons Butter to the potatoes.

Slice a few slices of the Cheese of your choice, and add to the potatoes.

Add Salt, to taste.
