These potatoes are so good!! I loved the added seasonings to the water rather than the potatoes; it seemed to give it more flavor and DS didn't complain that the pepper was too 'spicy'. Added a little butter to the top. Will definitely be making these my go to mashed taters! Made for Cookbook Tag.

These taters are fantastic! Love the onion powder (I used onion salt and left out the sea salt). I used fat-free Half & Half for the heavy cream and added some freshly snipped and chopped parsley. Will make these for Thanksgiving! Glad you posted them! Made for My 3 Chefs-Fall 09.

These potatoes are creamy and rich...and delicious. The idea of seasoning the water is brilliant! Those seasonings seep into the potatoes and flavor your mashed potatoes perfectly. This will be my new way of making mashed potatoes, thank you for the recipe!
