      Yes, fluffy! Don't worry if you add too much milk, the potatoes will thicken up eventually. Tip: use a large and deep bowl to mix the potatoes or else the potatoes will be flying all over the kitchen. White pepper for black. Very good!~ Thanks! cg ;)

      So, I was a little sceptical that this would be any different to any other mashed potato, so I had to try it to see, and how wrong I was! The wee secret ingredient makes these spuds amazing, and we now only ever have our spuds this way. Thank you for such a fantastic recipe!

      Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe dukeswalker. What a great way to prepare smashed potatoes. They were light, tender and fluffy with a great buttery flavor and they were perfectly seasoned. Who knew that a little baking powder would be so great with spuds. Thank you for teaching this ole woman a new trick. I will be making these quick and easy to make potatoes all the time now.
