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 Recipe #186272 and Recipe #99815. 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!.
