My very picky traditionalist husband not only loved this recipe, but now insists I make it all the time instead of the old-fashioned recipe. I think it came from Southern Living magazine.

"Very Good Potatoes"!!! I made a few adjustments though. I used 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. pepper and 1/4 tsp. dried dill. I also heated up the butter & cream (not milk) before adding to the mashed potatoes. Using real cream, (not milk) always make mashed potatoes taste better, and creamier.

With the number of revisions people are making to such a basic recipe, I am shocked that they are leaving so many stars. This recipe is good is you've never cooked before, I guess. You're supposed to use white pepper in mashed potatoes so there aren't black specks in your potatoes. And why not use fresh dill? If you're going to use dried dill you may as well use dried potatoes.
