Very good. I used 1/2 cup skim milk for 2 lbs of potatoes. I also used white pepper instead of black, and I leave the skins on. This is our favorite mashed potato recipe!

I made these as part of my special Valentine's menu. The potatoes received rave reviews. I left the skins on. I also added a half a stick of butter and a large dollop of sour cream. I used the whip of my KitchenAid mixer instead of a potato masher. The texture was creamy after I made these additions. I also sprinkled in a tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley because I had some on hand and used in a few of my other dishes that night. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

I made these last night with Chicken Fried Steak. They were very good and very simple to make. I didn't use the skim milk (blech) Give me fat or give me death! :o) I also added a handful of chopped chives at the last minute. Yum!
