Quantities. I used 2 kilos (4.4lbs) of potatoes, but you can increase or decrease and keep the exact same cook time.
Butter. Because of the way the water soaks into the potatoes, no drain mash requires less butter than traditional mashed potatoes recipes. But you can add a little at a time and adjust to your taste.
Milk. You can mix and match favourite mashed potatoes ingredients. Just note that butter is to be added after cooking not before. And that you don’t need any milk.
