    jacampbell's Note:

    Everyone always tells me that they have never heard of Miracle Whip in mashed potatoes but I grew up on this recipe in South Georgia. Maybe it's a local thing; maybe it's just a family thing but everyone who tries them likes them. I have never measured the ingredients for these so you might want to start off with a little and adjust to your taste. And let me know what you think! P.S. These go great with my Cheesy Meatloaf also on this site.

      These were very creamy potatoes. Only a slight taste of Micrale whip. Thanks jacampbell for a new way to fix mashed potatoes. Bullwinkle

      I've used this recipe for years...but with regular mayo and no butter. I also hand mash instead of whip - I like it slightly chunkier. I originally tried this because I ran out of butter one time and needed a creamy consistency. It's been a family favorite since. I think the vinegar in the mayo gives it a bit of a punch although it's not noticeable. Thanks for sharing your version!

      I use to date a guy from Puerto Rico, who always made his like this. I really liked the taste for something different. It's got the taste of potato salad.
