I've used this method forever. I just use one potato per person and then barely cover them with broth. That should be just enough to mash 'as is' without draining the potatoes. You can add one or two cloves of garlic. I also keep them 'skinny' by adding non-fat sour cream or non-fat half and half or 1% buttermilk. I also warm any of the above before adding it to the potatoes for a minute or two in the microwave.
