Directions

Step 1

Boil potatoes in slightly salted water.

Step 2

Lower the heat and cover the pot.

Step 5

Reserve about 3/4 cup of water.

Step 6

Put the potatoes back into the cooking pot.

Mash potatoes with butter, until butter is distributed evenly. (Potatoes will be lumpy.)

Add enough milk or cream to make the mixture smoother.

Step 9

Add eggs, salt and pepper to taste.

Step 10

Continue mashing. When mixture is well distributed, transfer to an oven to table baking dish.

Step 11

Add a little more butter. Sprinkle paprika to add colour.

Step 12

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F until the potatoes begin to get a light crust which should come around 30-40 minutes.
