Breezermom these delicious mashed potatoes did not disappoint. We enjoyed them so much. They were perfect. Made exactly as written wouldn't change a thing. The flavor and texture were spot on. I used the half and half and full salted butter, yummo. What a great meal we had, I served them with Amish Baked Fried Chicken and roasted carrots. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for 5 Star Tag Game.

Very nice! I used the potato water option because that's how I remember my Mom making mashed taters. Thanks for the walk down memory lane. Made for Football Pool 2012.

Thank you for posting this. The only difference in this reccipe and my mom's is that she used "evaporated " milk. Half 'n Half was not around when I was a kid. I still use evaporated milk. This may make a bit of a difference, but the recipe is still the same.....shear comfort food. Also, this can be made into cream of potato and "whatever" soup you desire in a matter of a few minutes. Yummy!

Wonderful! These mashed potatoes are like mom used to make. She mashed hers with a hand mixer also. Thanks for posting.....we need simple recipes like this posted because many people just don't know how to make them! Made for I Went to the Market cooking tag game.

Good potatoes; they are a little different than the ones my mom makes, but good, nonetheless! I used both potato water and 1/2 &1/2, as the liquid, to reduce calories a little! ;-) They were airy, which I'm not used to, but I am looking forward to making bacon potato 'cakes' with the leftovers. Thanks for sharing, breezermom! Sure am glad I tried them!

I love whipped potatoes! They are easier to prepare than mashed and have a much smoother consistency. This recipe is very similar to the way I make them. A whole stick of butter makes them very decadent! For every day meals, I cut back the butter to no more than half the amount called for. Also, these are the best made with half-and-half or heavy cream but you can use milk to save calories. Thanks for posting the recipe! Made for Went to the Market tag.

I've been using a mixer for ages and they always turn out great. I just used one small potato for myself tonight and went lighter on the half & half and butter so they were a bit less liquid than they would normally be with this delicious recipe. If you want good fluffy potatoes use this recipe, you can't go wrong. Made for Photo Tag.
