    Made these for tonight supper! Taste like a loaded baked potato. I wasn't sure I would like the mayo in them but they were fluffy and there was no mayo taste. I am sure you could use sour cream instead would be just as deliciousI

    I made chicken with this mashed potato recipe as a side dish. I am planning on making again. I heard that the mashed potatoes tasted like 'Thanksgiving' and someone even asked me if there was ham in it. I used turkey bacon which does not crumble, instead I tore it in small pieces, and was then mistakenly identified as ham by someone who did not know what ingredients were added.
