Each and every time I make mashed potatoes I wing/guess the butter and milk. More often than not, I use too much milk and they are a bit wet. Thank you for posting your recipe as this is the first time I've made great mashed potatoes! Better yet I'll be able to do it time and time again (always a surprise in the past) for which my family is very grateful.
Thank You so very much. This is a must for me. I have made so many mashed potatoes that have been to dry or watery. You have done a good job at posting this. Thank You
We enjoyed the Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook mashed potatoes for our holiday today and went to post it and found your recipe to be a match. The only thing that we did different was instead of an electric mixer I did it by hand with a potato masher. I also use just salt and pepper and no nutmeg. Thanks for posting Tam! Enjoy ChefDLH
Thank you for posting this recipe. It couldn't be easier and it turns out just right. It doesn't get much better than this. Just a note to add salt to the cooking water (1-1/2 tsp. salt per quart). For garlic lovers, try boiling peeled garlic cloves with the potatoes (as many as you want). They mash right in with the potatoes with little additional effort and great results.
Yum! Simply delicious. Thanks for posting!
These were simple and good. Will make these again. Thanks for posting.
Simple and good. Thanks Tam for sharing. Made for Cookbook Tag.
I love mashed potatoes cooked this way. To the previous reviewer before me, you just add salt and pepper to taste, a little at a time until it suits your taste buds. I sometimes throw in a couple ounces of cream cheese to the mix with yummy results. Thanks Tam, for posting.
Pretty good mashed potatoes, but you didn't say how much salt to put in the water, and with no added salt or pepper at the table, they were on the bland side for us.
Perfect measurement on ingredients. We loved the potatoes and it was SO easy to make.
