  1. Place the potatoes in a large Dutch oven, cover with water and add the garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Bring the potatoes to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium and cook until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Place the drained potatoes in a large bowl, add butter and whip the potatoes with an electric mixer until there are no lumps. Pour in the cream and continue whipping until the potatoes are fluffy.

These were very good. I used margarine and kept everything as written. Next time I will use milk or half and half instead of heavy cream just to make the dish a little healthier. Thanks

I cut this recipe in half, used organic reds, kept the onion/garlic powder the same amount and only used a pinch of sea salt. I didn't need the full amount of cream. I used fat free half-n-half ...

I love these potatoes for the ease of making a tasty mashed tater. I use all the seasonings as stated, but used less butter and milk instead of cream. These are very tasty. My whole family li...
