This is the only way my mom makes mashed potatoes. She doesn't measure the evaporated milk. She starts mashing the potatoes, with the butter and salt/pepper and adds the milk gradually until the potatoes are the desired consistency. I made these last night to serve with the leftovers from your Crazy Chicken recipe and used about 3/4 cup of the milk. I used the really large baking potatoes though. Thanks for posting this.
