Place the potatoes in a large sauce pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook 20 - 25 minutes or until your potatoes are tender. Drain very well and mash with the milk. Add the butter and salt and beat until fluffy.

Mound your potatoes about 4-6 inches high on a broiler safe pan. Set aside.
