This is my new favorite Mashed potato recipe. Wonderful flavor and creaminess. I followed the recipe except I did not add the cream - the potatoes would have been soup if I added it. I did not use the crockpot either. I put them in the warming draw of the stove which did the trick.

Dear gram-9, What's your problem? Just because you've seen this before, do you automatically think that everyone else has seen it also? Hmmm.....

gram-9 must be the clearinghouse for all recipes on the internet! LOL

These potatoes are fabulous -- not exactly diet food -- but great for special occasions. I like seeing recipe repeated every now and then as it reminds me to add it to my company menu!

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.
