Use a potato masher in a large bowl to manually mash the potatoes, or puree in a blender or food processor. Measure after the potatoes are mashed.
Using fresh potatoes is best - scrub and bake at 350 degrees F for about 1 hour until completely soft, then peel and mash. Or use canned potatoes – you will need 2 cans. Drain and mash, then measure and use 3 cups total.
