These are delicious and easy to make! I've never used these ingredients in mashed potatoes before, but I will use this recipe whenever I have buttermilk on hand!

I tried your recipe because it used ingredints I haven't used in potatoes before and cooking the potatoes with a few peels was a new thing too. The potatoes tasted so good. Thanks LizAnn. Bullwinkle.

This is delicious simplicity. This recipe uses simple ingredients and the potatoes come out nice and fluffy. Great recipe when you want just plain, good old comforting mashed potatoes! These go with just about anything. The whole family enjoyed these. I'll be making these again for sure. Thanx for sharing this simply delicious recipe!
