Mashed Potatoes

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


5 cups

Mayonnaise is the secret behind these comforting spuds from Waynesboro, Tennessee's Brenda Pulley. Not only are they special enough for company, but they're a cinch to whip up on weeknights. Try a batch tonight and use what's left in the next two recipes.


  • 3 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 3/4 to 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  2. Place potatoes in a bowl; beat until smooth. Add the mayonnaise, butter, salt and pepper; mix well. Refrigerate any leftovers.
