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.

Great! I thought I made enough to have leftovers to make shepard's pie, but after DS and friends finished, I couldn't spot a spud in the bowl! Everyone loved them. Thanks Dee!

Fantastic way to make mashed potatoes. I used plain milk, but followed the rest of the recipe. Made to use in the topping for Herbed Cottage Pie. Absolutely perfect. Thanks.

Made these for Thanksgiving and a couple of times since. Very easy, good, basic mashed potatoes. Tried the mixer method which worked well, but I do prefer a ricer. No lumps and no danger of overmixing. Used leftovers from one batch in a shepherd's pie and from another in Amish Potato Rolls. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Made for ZWT III. This is almost how I make mashed potatoes. The only difference is I always used regular milk. I made these with the canned milk and they turned out great. I didn't need to use the potato water, the potatoes were fluffy and creamy enough.

This is very similar to the recipe I use, and was just as good. I didn't use any potato water though, just all milk. Made for ZWTIII
