"These mashed potatoes are too fattening to have on a regular basis. I only make these on holidays, and everyone wonders what's in them that's makes them so rich..."

This is similar to how I make mine. Just a hint to those of you that complained of gooey, etc. Heat the cream/milk and butter before mixing it. Never use cold milk and butter. I just heat it...

I'm sorry, but I didn't like these. Maybe I should have mashed them by hand instead of using an electric mixer. The texture was like adding elmer's glue! Might try again using half & half ins...

I had a 10 pound bag of white potatoes, so I used them instead. Peeled all but 5 in the bag and quartered them and cooked them on low until they were falling apart. Drained, mashed and added s...

This recipe is how I typically make my potatoes with one exception -- normally I use milk and, honestly, I didn't notice a difference with the heavy cream. Anyway, my trick for perfect mashed p...

Nope, you do not have to peel a red potatoe:) The skin is fleshy and add some health to that cream. I LOVE HEAVY CREAM. AND REAL BUTTER!!! The Russets I do peel. Find them even better than the o...
