Potato Chunks, or Mashed
From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at www.dorothymcnett.com. These can be mashed, adding a little butter or milk as you whip them with a beater or potato masher. Great served with Fried Chicken and Milk Gravy!
3-4 medium potatoes, with skins on, or 6-8 small ones
Wash and trim potatoes, cutting into chunks about the same size. If using small potatoes, leave them whole. Place in glass or ceramic batter bowl. Cover with a glass or ceramic plate, never plastic! Cook in microwave using 3 minutes per large potato as a guide. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve. If desired, mash them, adding 1-2 tablespoons butter or olive oil. If you want them to be really fluffy, use your electric beater. Using a potato masher is nice as it leaves a bit more texture in the potatoes. You choose!
