These easy mashed potatoes come together quickly, and they’re a blank canvas for extra flavors and toppings.


  • 1½ lbs. (750 g) potatoes, coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) milk
  •  Salt
  •  Coarsely ground black pepper
  •  Optional: butter, pressed garlic cloves, cream cheese, sour cream, crumbled bacon, cheddar cheese


  1. Place the potatoes into the 3-qt. (3-L) Micro-Cooker® Plus and add enough water to cover them. Cover and microwave on HIGH for 10–12 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.

  2. Carefully remove the inner lid and drain the water. Add the milk and mash with the Mix ‘N Masher. Add the salt, pepper, and optional mix-ins, if desired; mix thoroughly.
