Perfect Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by CareCook

My grandma used to make these mashed potatoes for me when I was a little girl. Sometimes she'd make a whole 5 lb dish and bring it to my house. Before she died she gave me the recipe. I'm the only one who has it in the family...until now. Note that this recipe is wonderful for Shepherd's Pie and used in my Turkey Potpie .

These are wonderful and onion salt is a must. I usually make extra (10 pounds at a time) and freeze them. They thaw and taste great!
