These came out nice fluffy and flavorful! I did add a some fresh minced chives and sprinkled some french fried onions on top and these were a great accompaniment to our fish. Basic mashed potatoes that go great with traditional dishes! Thanks MN MOM!!
Very good! I can finally make mashed potatoes - I've had disaters before! I also used a masher on the potatoes then whipped them & the other ingredients with my mixer because I like my mashed potatoes creamy! I used evaporated milk in place of the half-&-half (a little more than 1/4 cup) about 1/4 t black pepper and between 1-2 t salt. I also added about 2 t butter extract so they were more buttery flavored without the added fat/calories. Next time I'm going to try fat free evaporated milk to make them even healthier!
These were okay. I think the recipe would be better using smaller red potatoes. They needed to be cooked longer than it says and they turned out dry. If you are using Yukon gold potatoes I would suggest cutting them into eight pieces instead of four.
These are incredibly yummy by far the best basic mashed potato recipe I've found so far. Be careful not to get overzealous with the lemon juice - if you put too much in it definitely overpowers and ruins the dish. But it does add a nice touch so I advise that you not omit it completely. Otherwise it's open to variation...i've done it with or without the half and half with roasted garlic green onions etc. All quite yum.
My wife prepared these mashed potatoes and they were good. They were a little dry with only a 1/2 cup of half-and-half but nonetheless I thought that this was a good all-around hearty batch of mashed tators. It's a winner!
