Yes, the use of the electric mixer is a great tip, but the recipe in and of itself is a little more bland than I prefer. Not a bad start, but I used heavy cream instead of milk (adding a little at a time to reach the desired consistency), more butter, and my "secret" mashed potato ingredient -- just a tiny pinch of nutmeg, as well as salt and pepper. Garlic, black olive, onion, cooked carrot or spinach, wasabi powder, or shredded cheese, are nice variations on the mashed potato recipe, too. This is a versatile base. Use your imagination and add what you like.
Also, sometimes I scrub the potatoes well and leave the skins on. It makes for a less-smooth texture but adds nutrients. Adding a little dry milk powder will also enrich your mashed potatoes.
