Great recipe for mashed potatoes! These are definitely creamy and cheesy! I used red potatoes and left the skins on and added a little garlic and onion powder to taste. I used reduced fat cheddar cheese and Land O Laked light butter to cut down on the fat and calories. I used an electric mixer to get the nice and fluffy. Great side dish!

They turned out way too thick. I'd skip the evaporated milk next time and just use regular.

These potatoes are tasty, but I am not sure they are good enough to justify the fat content. For that reason alone I will most likely not make them again. I think you can have potatoes just as rich and creamy without the added fat from the condensed milk. I will try making these again using regular milk rather than the condensed.

These were absolutely delicious! I added some minced garlic and about 1/4 cup of chopped onion to the boiling water with the potatoes as I normally do, and these were GREAT! Thanks very much!

Used FF sour cream instead of the evaporated milk, plus about 1/3 more of the shredded cheese, and the hubby and son inhaled these!

I used organic red potatoes, fat free evaporated milk and lowfat shredded cheese. I did heat the milk and gradually added a little at a time until it was the right consistancy, I had about a 1/3 of a cup leftover after I was finished. This went really well with Meatloaf with a Ranch Twist and salad.

I am awful at making mashed potatoes. I thought I would give this recipe a try. The carnation milk is what makes it really creamy. Try adding some fresh garlic to give it a zing!! Tastes great.

Delicious! I used knock-off brand evaporated milk and left out the cheese and they were still amazing. Nice and fluffy and rich. Definitely a success, I will be making all of my mashed potatoes like this in the future.
