Step 1

Cut peeled potatoes into quarters (I don't peel mine if they are red, I do if they are russet). Place in saucepan and cover with COLD water. Add salt and bring to a slow boil, then reduce to a simmer.

Step 2

Cook on low heat (cooking on high heat with cause them to mush and not keep their shape,russets do this more than reds ).

Step 3

Add onion slice for flavor, when you add potatoes remove it later if you don't want to serve the onion in the potatoes.the water is going to boil out, you need just enough at end to cream the potatoes.

Step 4

When tender, add butter and flour mixed together mine looks like a mix of mashed and boiled this is what you are looking for add thickening. Add to potatoes and bring to a low boil.

Step 5

Add black pepper as desired, cook just until thickened.
