This is a great basic mashed potato recipe. I also didn't have butter buds, so I used half olive oil and half butter. Turned out great! I used these potatoes in a casserole similar to shepherd's pie.

I didn't have Butter Buds so I used real butter. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written. Very creamy and had a great taste. I liked that it was lower in carbs and calories than the usual mashed potatoes I make. I will definitely keep this recipe on hand. I served this with Hamburger Steak and Gravy and Yellow Squash Saute. Made for July 2011 All You Can Cook Buffet.

Made exactly as posted, these are very creamy and tasty. The leftovers were reheated in the oven as a casserole (I sprayed the top with butter-flavored cooking spray so it crisped up. This recipe is a keeper! Made for Alphabet Soup Game. Thanks for a great recipe Shellbelle!.
