"2-1/2 c. of milk is way too much milk. Potatoes were soupy. Cut back on the milk. I topped with fresh chives, minced"

"One of the best mashed potato recipes I have ever made. quick, easy, and delicious. You can always doctor it up by adding some of your own likes but really is super tasty just the way it is."
