      These are the best! I doubled the recipe when my husband came into a great deal on 10#s of potatoes. Then I froze some in zipper bags and some in 6 oz glass dishes. Once frozen, I popped them out of the dishes and into zipper bags, so we could cook individual portions. Great for teenagers with wacky schedules.

      I am so glad I found this recipe. We just think they are great! I make only slight changes due to personal preferences. # 1, after potatoes have cooked and drained, I put them back into pot and throw a linen towel over them and set the pot on a burner set on low so the potatoes dry out and steam to fluffy goodness. After that I use a potato ricer before whipping. We do not like lumps in our mashies. #2, I use more butter and season a little heavier. Thank you so much for a wonderful idea.

      We really enjoyed this - I did add 1/2 cup milk to the recipe to make it creamier. As somebody else said, it seemed more like a baked potato texture until I added the milk. I have some in the freezer for future dinners. This is great for a working mom!
