Our family loves these creamy and comforting potatoes. Garlic and other herbs make them so mouthwatering, I serve them just plain-no gravy is needed. For an extra-buttery taste, I'd suggest using Yukon Gold potatoes.—Suzi Bonnett, Bellevue, Nebraska

"My family loved this recipe! I substituted 1% milk for the heavy whipping cream, which was not as creamy but still tasted great."

"These potatoes are good! I use only half the cream at first when mashing, then add more as needed (one cup would have yielded soupy results). Then I save what's left of the cream to use to thin leftovers before microwaving. -Lori in WI."
