Place halved potatoes in a large pot of cold, salted water. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Drain potatoes and place back into hot pot. Allow potatoes to dry in the pot for a few minutes.
Mash potatoes with a masher than add all ingredients except for the milk. Mash and mix together until smooth. Add 1/4 cup milk and stir. Keep adding milk until desired consistency is reached (I liked the whole amount listed for creamy potatoes).
