Reviews forSunday Dinner Mashed Potatoes
"This has become our favorite mashed potato recipe for holiday meals. So good."
"These are my grandson's favorite potatoes. There are never any left. The only thing I changed was I use the golden potatoes. Wonderful recipe. Thanks for sharing it with us!"
"Tasty. Creamy. easy. Quite the combination that makes this recipe a welcome addition to the kitchen arsenal."
"Yuuuum! These were awesome."
"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."
"Definately my favorite mashed potato recipe...perfect even without baking them."
"We always make these mashed potatoes. We don't use a dutch oven and they still turn out just fine. I've even not baked them in the oven and they still turn out great."
"Best mashed potatoes ever! Not low-calorie, but delicious. :)"
"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."
"My family loves these! II do not mash them first, just beat them and I add some garlic powder and seasoned salt to taste. They are GREAT!!"
