1 3/4 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1/2 cup buttermilk
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
In a large pot, cover the potatoes with cold salted water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until the potatoes are very tender, 20 to 25 minutes; drain well and transfer to a bowl.
While the potatoes are still hot, using a potato masher, mash in the buttermilk, butter, salt, black pepper, and nutmeg. Mash until the potatoes are the consistency you like. Serve piping hot.
