Way too much milk when using a liquid measuring cup. I had to dump some of it out and then it turned out okay.

3 potatoes was the perfect amount, because we didn't end up with a crazy amount of left overs (which I loved). We stirred in a few shakes of garlic powder for extra flavor.

I just added a few pats of butter, execlent!!!!

Very good I didn't have any sour cream so I used cream cheese. Excellent!

I used a bit of cream cheese and a spoon of butter, mashed the potatoes with a fork. The food processor makes them too gooey for my taste :) Guests loved them!

I used heavy cream instead of milk and sour cream and it was perfect.

I'm making this again FOR SURE! The kids love it, and so do I! I just added in cheese to the mixture, and it made it taste delicious!

I will make again however use less milk
