    BecR's Note:

    This is the way our family likes our mashed potatoes. The evaporated milk makes this dish special. Simple, creamy and good!

      I've used evaporated milk in my mashers, too. Besides giving good creamy texture I like the flavor it gives. I usually don't measure but this time I followed your recipe and the amounts were perfect. Served this under some "Stuffed Pepper Soup." Thanks BecR! Roxygirl

      This recipe was made on 8/6/09 to go along with fried chicken and some fresh corn off the cob.Since it was just my SO and I, the recipe was adjusted accordingly. I admit evaporated milk was never used before to make mashed potatoes,but after this I think it's the way to go.This is pure " comfort food " at it's finest.I will use this method again. Thank you so much for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

      I absolutely LOVE this recipe! I do not have anything to compare it too, so I simply gave it 4 stars.
