Golden Mashed Potatoes
Meet the Cook: When there's no gravy with the meat, this is great to serve in place of regularly mashed potatoes. I make it often to take to picnics and church socials. My husband even made it for his family's reunion one year when I couldn't go!
We have a grown son, a 17-year-old son and a 12-year-old daughter.
