    Cook and mash the potatoes
    Cut the potatoes into bite size pieces and add them to the pot of boiling water. Cook, 14 to 16 minutes, until very tender when pierced with a fork. Reserving ½ cup of the cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain the potatoes thoroughly and return to the pot. Off the heat, add 2 tbsp of butter (double for 4 portions), and a drizzle of olive oil. Using a fork, mash to your desired consistency (add the reserved cooking water as necessary); season with S&P to taste. Set aside in a warm spot.
