    Dienia B.'s Note:

    These are the best potatoes. Mom calls them whipped potatoes. She doesn't like lumpy spuds. Use the left overs in hot beef sandwiches, shepherds pie, or the next meal of some sort, lol.

      I'm replacing my old recipe with this one. And lest not forget, I am one to hang onto things pretty long. Like, I've been married to the same man for the last 25 years.

      Wonderful mashed potatoes!!! I made a scaled back version, using about 1lb of potatoes and since I didn't need a full can of milk, used regular, but otherwise followed as written. With the butter and milk, I didn't need any of the reserved potato water. Served it with fried chicken and corn for a wonderful meal. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Stars Tag Game.
