"I want to start out by saying, gram-9, just because you've seen a recipe several times doesn't mean the rest of the world has. Why make that comment under the review section anyways? I appreciated the recipe and made it last night. It was quite good but I bet leftovers will be even better tonight. Thanks Taste of Home!"

"These are the best tasting mashed potatoes! I prepared them the night before and then placed in my crock pot insert in the fridge. Then I simply added 1 hour to the slow cooker time. It was nice not to mess up the kitchen the day company was coming."
