  1. Add broth and potatoes to a large pot; bring to a boil.
  2. Cover and reduce heat to medium; cook for 10 minutes or so, until the potatoes are tender.
  3. Drain, saving the broth.
  4. Mash the potatoes and add 1/4 cup broth, half-and-half, butter and pepper.
  5. Add more broth if needed until you get the desired consistency.
  6. Note: After I mash the potatoes, I use the electric mixer to get them smooth.

These mashed potatoes are so yummy. And have a great texture. The taste is great with the chicken broth, cream and butter. Thanks ratherbeswimmin :) Made for All you can cook buffet

These definitely are creamy! Cooking with chicken broth adds so much flavor. I used white pepper.

These were good mashed po's - I have a habit of making very bland, boring mashed potatoes that no one likes very much, and these were much better! Next time I'll add some salt and perhaps garlic. Yum!
