Creamy and delicious - comfort food at it's best! Plus, it's a great way to use up some leftover evaporated milk. I added a little garlic and onion powders to give this a little pizzaz, but other than that this is your basic recipe for really good mashed potatoes - perfect with your favorite gravy!

These were just ok. They didn't taste like anything special and got a wierd shiny sheen on top. I probably won't make them again- but it was a good use of leftover evaporated milk. As long as your gravy/sauce is tasty enough, they're ok. I served these with Jagerschnitzel from this site.

Wow, these taste even better than I expected! We had them with Adobo Sirloin from this site and plain green beans, and my husband says he wants this meal as often as I'll make it! I cut up the potatoes before boiling, and they were soft enough to mash easily with a hand masher after 15 minutes -- just enough time to make the rest of the meal. Thanks for a great recipe!

Excellent mashed potatoes. I used the fat-free evaporated milk and felt less guilty! I also made "dirty mashed potatoes" by leaving the peeling on adding fiber and flavor. My daughter loves them this way and I always say, "the dirtier they are, the better they taste!".

Ever since I was a little girl, this is how my mom, my mom's mom and my mom's mom's mom has made mashed potatoes. There is something exquisite about them. I have now hooked my boyfriend and his parents on this simple way of making potatoes to come home to. I have found that the best mashed "evaporated milk" potatoes come from small smooth red potatoes. Definitely a must try and maybe they will become part of your traditions as well!

I thought these were very good, but so are potatoes with whipping cream instead of milk! Check my other reviews for recipies that are doubled-I have a big family

This turned out delicious! Very creamy and rich!

I have been making poatatoes like this for years except I use whole milk. I don't think the evaporated milk made my potatoes any creamier. I asked my husband if they tasted different and he said they tasted the same as always. So the extra money on a can of evaporated milk was not worth the extra money. I will stick to whole milk.
