Reviews for Deluxe Mashed Potatoes
"I chose to try this recipe for thanksgiving because I could make it the night before. I made exactly as directed. The potatoes were good, but a little dry for my family's taste. We prefer a creamier potatoe, but they were not bad and easy to put together."
"Made these ahead just now to bake for later with my slow cooker short ribs. Tried a taste..they are excellent!! cant wait to bake them tonite...."
"Excellent flavor and very creamy, loved it."
"Delicious!!! This recipe elevates mashed potatoes from ho hum to wow!"
"I LOVE this recipe. It always gets great comments. I use 4 oz. cream cheese and 2/3 c. sour cream. Then I fold in by hand some shredded cheddar cheese. Outstanding! PS Don't use a mixer if you are adding the cheddar cheese-it turns your potatoes orange!"
