Why are my mash potatoes extremely bitter?!

Mustardeer | Jan 22, 201302:36 PM     43

Just cooked mash potatoes in bulk and they have an extremely bitter aftertaste. There's no way i can eat those. Where did i go wrong?

I cut up 10 organic russet potatoes in quarters
covered them with cold water
brought to a boil
a little sea salt
reduced heat and simmered for 20 min
drained them
in the empty pot I threw in a bit of unsalted butter, organic sour cream ( 1 tsp, 1 tsp cream cheese, and sprinkled a little cheese mix. Oh and a little bit of milk. Simmered that for 1 min, then turned off the heat and added the drained potatoes. Mashed them with a masher.
Where did I go wrong? Could it be burned milk or something?
