K.I.S.S.
Keep it Simple Silly!

Work Smarter, Not Harder
In the case of making mashed potatoes for a crowd, the less work the better. That's why we recommend this recipe here, which instructs you leave potatoes whole and on the skins (gasp!), then run them through a food mill for picture perfect results every time!
