- 1.5 - 2 pounds russet potatoes peeled
- 1/2 cup milk lukewarm

Cut the peeled potatoes in quarts or smaller. Cook until a knife easily goes through the potato. This is approx. 30 minutes, but may take longer, depending on the size of your potato chunks.
When the potatoes are ready, drain them in a colander.
Transfer the potatoes to the ricer and keep that tool above the pot in which you cooked the potatoes.
Add the milk and mascarpone and mix with a spoon. Allow the potatoes to absorb the liquid.
Taste and season with salt and as needed. Add some nutmeg if you like.
Spoon the mashed potatoes in a serving dish and top with optional garnishes, such as a dollop of mascarpone, freshly ground black pepper or some chopped chives.
