What ratios do you use for your mashed potatoes?

I need to make mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving. I have not made them in years. Back when I did, I had figured a good recipe for the amount of potatoes respective to the milk and butter. Of course, I can no longer find this.

I cook the potatoes and then run through the food mill. I think that I melted the butter into the milk and then mixed in the hot liquid mixture to the potatoes.

I am trying to figure out the best amount of milk and butter for x pounds (probably 5 or 10) of potatoes. Any suggestions or your own tried and true recipe amounts are appreciated!
