    Yes! Carnation Evaporated Milk makes the very best tasting mashed potatoes! I learned this from my mother-in-law in the '70s as this is what she used to make hers, and they were the best I ever ate. The evaporated milk just gives a sweetness and great flavor that you can't get from regular milk or cream.

    This is the only way my mom makes mashed potatoes. She doesn't measure the evaporated milk. She starts mashing the potatoes, with the butter and salt/pepper and adds the milk gradually until the potatoes are the desired consistency. I made these last night to serve with the leftovers from your Crazy Chicken recipe and used about 3/4 cup of the milk. I used the really large baking potatoes though. Thanks for posting this.

    Perfect mashed potatos. Taking into account the previous reviews, I used only half a cup of evaporated milk...even though I had almost three pounds of potatoes. The result was smooth potatoes of a perfect consistency.

    My Mom always used evaporated milk to mash her potatoes. This recipe tasted every close to hers. The potatoes were very creamy. We liked them. Thanks Fluffy. Bullwinkle.
