"WE ALWAYS had mashed potatoes with our roast beef, only we called them 'creamed' potatoes, a cloud-like delight crowned with golden-brown gravy from the roast! Any kind of potato will do...the secret to making them light and fluffy is in the whipping!"

"This was one of my contributions to the meal when we joined friends for Thanksgiving dinner. They were delicious with a perfect creaminess. I used heavy whipping cream, and found I used more cream than recipe calls for. You'll have to be the judge of that as you beat or mash the potatoes. I also used garlic salt rather than plain salt."
