I love these potatoes. I'll be honest though, I didn't use this recipe, but I did throw together almost the exact same thing last night. It was so good I wanted to post it...but I didn't need to...

I used 8 tablespoons of butter (a whole stick) and 1/3 less fat cream cheese. I also added 1/2 cup of milk. Prior to adding the extra butter and milk, the potatoes were very dry.

Burke loves it! Made this tonight for "Easter" dinner and am forwarding the recipe to my stepmother - the best cook I know. So easy and tasty. Yum yum yummmm!

Just wanted to say I know several people have wanted to thin them, which is fine, but I never have. Yes, they are way thicker than normal mashed potatoes, but they are supposed to be thick and ...

These are delicious! I used regular sized red potatoes (about 7-8) since they are less expensive than the petite and cut them into eight pieces. I served them at our family Christmas dinner an...

The best mashed potatoes I have ever had! I didn't even think I liked mashed potatoes until this recipe.
