Mom's Mashed Potatoes

"These are the best potatoes. Mom calls them whipped potatoes. She doesn't like lumpy spuds. Use the left overs in hot beef sandwiches, shepherds pie, or the next meal of some sort, lol."

    I'm replacing my old recipe with this one. And lest not forget, I am one to hang onto things pretty long. Like, I've been married to the same man for the last 25 years.

    Very good and creamy potatoes. Very simple to make and the taste is wonderful. Thank you for sharing.

    Wonderful mashed potatoes!!! I made a scaled back version, using about 1lb of potatoes and since I didn't need a full can of milk, used regular, but otherwise followed as written. With the butter and milk, I didn't need any of the reserved potato water. Served it with fried chicken and corn for a wonderful meal. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Stars Tag Game.

    Great! I thought I made enough to have leftovers to make shepard's pie, but after DS and friends finished, I couldn't spot a spud in the bowl! Everyone loved them. Thanks Dee!

    Fantastic way to make mashed potatoes. I used plain milk, but followed the rest of the recipe. Made to use in the topping for Recipe #175208. Absolutely perfect. Thanks.

    These were just the best mashed potatoes I've had in a long time. I made them exactly as the recipe states except that I used margarine instead of butter. This is definately a keeper and has found a home in my cookbook to be made again and again.
