Ingredients

5 lb
russet potatoes
48 oz
chicken broth
water to cover
1/2 stick

16 oz
half and half

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Peel and cube potatoes. Cover with chicken broth and add enough water to cover, if needed. Boil.
2
When potatoes are fork tender, smash potatoes to your liking. (My husband loves chunks of potatoes, others like it more creamy.) Add butter and half and half. Heat on low for about 10 minutes to allow flavors to meld.

Serve with warm crusty bread. Serve with cheese, bacon bits, scallions, sour cream, or whatever you might like on a baked potato.
