Linda's Fluffy Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Lindas Busy Kitchen

These potatoes are delicious, rich, creamy and fluffy. Try them, and see for yourself. NOTE: If you use smaller potatoes, use less milk. Start with 1/2 c. and go from there.

Seriously yummy! :) I jumped at Linda's suggestion of making these as GARLIC mashed potatoes and added the three cloves, even though I'd cut the recipe in half to serve two; I'm an unashamed garlic-lover. We greatly enjoyed these with TeresaS's Recipe #152910. I used low-fat milk and low-fat sour cream, which I have found in no way seriously compromise flavour. Thank you, Linda, for sharing this delightfully and most deservedly super-star recipe. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pan, boil potatoes with salt until tender, 15-20 minutes.
  2. Drain water, and add remaining ingredients.
  3. Mash until smooth, with a potato masher.
  4. Do not whip continually with a beater, or they will get gooey, and starchy as the gluten breaks down.
  5. Note: You can turn this recipe into garlic mashed potatoes, by adding 3 cloves roasted garlic when you mash.
  6. You can turn this recipe into garlic onion mashed potatoes, by adding sauteed onions, and roasted garlic to your taste, while mashing.
  7. For another tasty dish, try adding shredded Cheddar cheese, and cooked broccoli pieces.
