Russets or yukon gold. The russets in the recipe Kristy refers to really do the job.

I love these mashed potatoes and they call for russets: http://www.food52.com/recipes/3012_mashed_potatoes_with_caramelized_onions_and_goat_cheese

Even if you don't use this recipe, Russets are a good choice for mashing.
