      This was indeed the perfect mashed potato recipe!! They were decadant, the perfect texture, and deliciously buttery. I always have added sour cream, chives, etc. into my mashed potatoes and they never tasted as good as these...perfect for topping with gravy!

      We used fat free half & half along with 2% milk, and of course Yukon Gold potatoes. They are our favorites with reds taking a close 2nd. This recipe calls for ricing the potatoes, but we just beat them up in the mixer, and we still got the most super delicious mashed potatoes. It's great to heat the milks and butter, as it keeps the potatoes hot for serving. A definite keeper recipe, thanks for posting. :)
