Creamed Potatoes No. 1

From The Modern Family Cookbook
5 or 6 medium size potatoes
1 cup cold water
1 cup cream, milk or evaporated milk
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped parsley, if desired

Wash potatoes, pare thinly, and cut in ½-inch dice. Add water, cover kettle and boil gently until half done, about 5 minutes; then add cream or milk and seasonings, again cover and continue cooking slowly until potatoes are done and sauce slightly thickened. Just before serving, sprinkle with a little chopped parsley if desired. 5 servings.

My note: Or just buy the pre-diced potatoes at the store!

    We used evaporated milk and powdered milk in so many things when I was growing up. I’m fine with evaporated milk in potatoes, mac & cheese and meatloaf, but some things just taste off with it. Powdered milk should never, ever be used for anything. That’s just nasty!
