Mama's Best Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by BamaKathy

My son kept saying the potatoes at school tasted weird. My daughter informed him, "They are fake potatoes, not real, like Mama's". So here's the real thing, very much worth the effort. (Hint, if you warm the milk slightly in a separate saucepan, the potatoes will stay hot longer until serving. Grandma says if they taste bland, they need more salt!)

Wonderful! This was so great... I added about 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon of crushed rosemary and a dash of garlic powder. Thanks so much!
