Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

***I got this great recipe from a fellow nestie. I had never thought to add parmesan to mashed potatoes, and let me just say that this recipe was fantastic! Thanks for sharing, Annie!***

3 large baking potatoes
1/4 c. (or so) mayo
1/2 c. (or so) milk
2 tbsp. butter or margarine
Garlic Salt to taste
Parsley to taste
Grated parmesan to taste
Course Ground pepper to taste

Scrub and peel potatoes. In a large pot, fill halfway with water and heat on med/high.

Roughly chop potatoes into 2" or so cubes, put into water with a handful of salt. Boil until they are tender when pierced with a fork. Strain and return to pot. Mash to desired consistency.

Add butter, milk, mayo, parmesan, garlic salt, parsley, and ground pepper a little at a time until flavored to taste and has reached the desired consistency. The texture should be light, fluffy, and creamy, and the potatoes should hold their shape. Be careful when adding the milk, because it can dilute the potatoes and make them runny.
