"Boiling the potatoes in broth instead of water creates a wonderful flavor but you may of coarse use only water or half of each --- use only russets or Yukon gold potatoes for this and once the potatoes are peeled do not slice them leave whole when cooking this will prevent the potatoes from absorbing too mush water, making for a better texture when mashing --- for extra flavor I most always add in 1 teaspoon onion powder and you may also add in some roasted garlic is desired or some garlic powder--- all amounts may be increased or adjusted to taste."

"Soft and good!"
"I cut the recipe in 1/2 and it made just the perfect amount for 3 people. Creamy and rich tasting. Because I did only make 1/2 recipe I chose to omit the egg. Another good potato recipe compliments of Kitten~"
"Followed the recipe exactly. These turned out perfect. My wife and picky 8 year old both loved them."
"These weren't fluffy, they were creamy and gooy"
"Very creamy and fluffy mashed potatoes that went so well with our Thanksgiving dinner. I went ahead and used water to boil the potatoes, milk instead of half and half, and two eggs since I added about 3 more large potatoes. Next time I will try the chicken broth and half and half. Also used about 1/2 cup of sour cream and a 1 1/2 sticks of butter. Sweets another great recipe that I will make again."
"Much better than boiling in water. I used low sodium broth and it was still plenty salty. Thanks Kitz. Awesome."
"Excellent recipe. I used russet potatoes, but I left the skin on. Served with Southern Fried Pork Chops With Creamy Pan Gravy and Brownie Cupcakes with Peanutbutter Frosting. Thanks Kittencal for a very good dinner."
"Best i've ever taste.. used yukon gold potatoes. So light and creamy. Everyone said 5 plus plus stars. Thanks kittencal. Nita"
"These were really very good mashed potatoes! I used Yukon Golds and they really did shine! Thank you! Jelly :)"
"Absolutely wonderful! Super creamy and loved the addition of the broth, that's a brilliant idea! I used a bit more of sour cream and butter than called for. Everybody loved it! Thank you, Kittencal, for sharing another one of your fabulous recipes, this one is also a keeper! :)"
"Also refer to Recipe #191490 regarding this review! Well, here's the scoop from Thanksgiving Dinner. My daughter, home from college for a few days, specifically requested Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes. Anyway, I found 2 of Kittencal's recipes that sounded yummy (Recipe #191490 & Recipe #201865) and I kind of mixed the 2 together. Basically I used the Recipe #191490 but made the following changes inspired by Recipe #201865 and it turned out A+++! I used the following: 1 49 oz. can Fat Free Chicken Broth instead of water to cook the potatoes, 10 Yukon Gold Potatoes instead of 8 large Russet Potatoes, 8 oz. fat free cream cheese, approx. 1/3 cup sour cream (perhaps a little more), I did not have onion powder so I left this out and I didn't use the shredded cheddar cheese. Anyway, the family absolutely RAVED about them! Thanks so much Kittencal for making my daughter mashed potatoes what she really wanted!"
"100% yummy. I used a lot more sour cream (fat free) as I cooked 1 med potato and used almost 1/4 cup in that. Sorry Kit but I used Molly McButter in place of the butter as I'm fighting cholesterol like mad. Still the end result is really wonderful. Thanks for this Kit."
"These were very good. I thought the flavor was improved by using broth instead of water. My one son was just so-so on them that's why I gave them 4 stars. Thanks."
"These were the creamiest, most flavorful mashed potatoes I've ever eaten! I did use whipping cream instead of sour cream because I wanted to spoon the gravy from recipe#197453 over the top, and I didn't want the sour cream to compete with the flavor. I LOVE making the potatoes in broth and adding some of the cooking liquid to the potatoes. I had russets this time, but I can't wait to make it with Yukon golds and with the sour cream. YUMMY! Winner after winner after winner with your recipes, Kitten!"
"Delicious as always, KittenCal! Thanks for the broth tip, my family loved it! I don't think I'll ever boil my potatoes in water again! Thank you!"
