It was delicious, but I used lite sour cream and a tiny bit of miracle whip instead of mayo to make it less calories, and I don't like mayonnaise too much. I also used a clove of garlic and some chopped white onion that I let sautee before I put the potatoes and milk and such. I didn't skin the potatos either.... I like skin in potatos....

Love these mashed potatoes and they are so attractive as well. Thought the proportions were spot on. I've never used mayonnaise in mashed potatoes before. I used less than called for because I got tired of trying to coax the mayo out of the dreaded plastic squeeze bottle. Thanks for sharing.
