"These are, hands down, the best mashed potatoes I have ever had -- and so very easy to make. You can also use soy milk and non-dairy butter for vegans. I make a side batch vegan-style for my brother and his friends, and they say it tastes great.

Great recipe for mashed potatoes! I lightened it up a bit by using Land O Lakes light butter and skim milk. These turned out really good - there's just nothing like good old fashioned comfort food!
Ohhhh, don't add all this milk in at once! I have a feeling you'll be disappointed if you do. Just dribble it into the potatoes until you get the thickness that appeals to you. And, while it's always a good idea to heat the milk before adding it to the potatoes, I'm not sure I understand the necessity of boiling it. The reason I tried these potatoes had nothing to do with that however. It was all about the nutmeg. I've enjoyed the slightest hint of it in other savory dishes, but never in potatoes, and I was curious. While I won't make a habit of including nutmeg in my mashed potatoes, I did enjoy the subtle hint of it here as well and was pleased I tried it (but Hubs not so much).
Followed recipe to a "T" and they are hands down, the best I have ever tasted. I initially thought the nutmeg was weird, but found it makes a cream of mushroom soup, so why not mashed potatoes? I will use this every time I make mashed. Hubby loves them even more than my normal "best ever" so this is a true hit. Since making them the first time, he has requested them over and over. Calls them "Moe's Mashed" says he has never tasted anything so delicious. Morgan, thanks for posting.
Fabulous! I was looking for a bit healthier version so I kept the skins on, used "Smart Balance® Butter Blend Stick", and used 2% milk. I really think the Yukon Gold potatoes were the difference in the texture and taste.
Great recipe. The nutmeg adds an interesting flavor that reminded me of Thanksgiving. I would definitely make them again.
VERY creamy. I might even use a little less milk but they were very good. I also sprinkled with garlic powder and that tasted great!
yes...this is the recipe i've been looking for. forget the garlic and the fancy mixes. we love this one...didn't use nutmeg and they were still the #1
Great! I just added an extra stick of butter!
