Best Potatoes for Mashed Potatoes

Gold potatoes are our favorite for making mashed potatoes as we find they are the most buttery. We also love the rustic look they lend if some of the skins are left on.

While other potatoes will work in a pinch, we find that russet potatoes can be kind of mealy and red potatoes kind of waxy.
