When boiling potatoes for mashed potatoes, adding a couple of tablespoons of cooking oil will keep them from boiling over and making a mess!
I also season my potatoes with salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder when I boil them. When I drain them, I leave a bit of that water in the potatoes for when I mash them. Add butter, milk and, if you're feeling adventurous, a little cream cheese for flavor and to make them creamy.
