This is a very good basic mashed potato recipe. I left out the instant potato flake.The results was a creamy tasty mashed potato dish. Comfort food at its best.

I did not have heavy cream on hand but I did have fat free half-n-half, which I used instead. I did not use the full pint, just enough to get the potatoes nice and fluffy. VERY good--it reminded me of the mashed potatoes that Grandma made when I was little. NO leftovers, the boys ate it all.

Great idea!! I used Yukon gold and the results were 'golden'! (The steaming time of 20 minutes listed seems a little short, especially given the size of most russets. After 25 minutes, the smaller Yukon golds were not quite fork tender yet.) I mashed mine with the skins - that's where all the nutrients are! Hands down, the BEST mashed potatoes I've ever made!! And I hate instant potato flakes, but what a great way to save runny mashed potatoes! (For those making comments about the instant potatoes: Please READ the directions: she says to only add them if needed for consistency! A better option than runny potatoes, in my opinion!) Thank you for the GREAT idea!

Loved these--made them last night and they came out delicious. I did not end up needing the instant flakes, although I have used them before as a backup. The heavy cream is soooooo perfect in these! Thank you Susiq2!

Could be worse. It just didn't have any bacon in it. That was a downer.
