"I've been using this recipe for quite a few years. Whenever I'm having guests I make these potatoes a day or two ahead. Who wants to be mashing potatoes at the last minute when you're making the gravy, vegetables, etc? Another plus is that they keep their smooth consistency when reheating."

"Wow, these are delicious! If you're going to go through the trouble of making real mashed potatoes (as opposed to instant), then use this recipe! It's so creamy, and not too salty. I used reduced-fat sour cream and reduced-fat cream cheese, and these turned out perfect."
