Microwave Mashed Potatoes

  • 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter and margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper

Place potatoes and water in a 3-quart microwavable casserole. Cook covered 9-11 minutes at Power Level "Hi" or until potatoes are tender, stirring twice while cooking. Let stand covered 5 minutes; drain. Beat with electric mixer until smooth.

Combine remaining ingredients in a 2-cup glass measuring cup. Cook uncovered 1 1/2 to 2 minutes at power Level "Hi" or until butter is melted and mixture is hot. Gradually beat milk mixture into potatoes until smooth. If necessary, reheat mashed potatoes by cooking covered 2 to 3 minutes at power level "Hi" or until heated through.
