I followed the recipe pretty much exactly as written and used the towel under the lid trick, but after putting these into the crock pot, they turned to thick soup. Delicious soup, but still soup. No one complained, and in fact, they all complimented me on how delicious they were. The only deviations I made from the recipe was to mash the potatoes with a manual potato masher instead of whipping with an electric mixer, so they were more chunky than whipped. Plus, I prepared the potatoes the night before Christmas and refrigerated them overnight. Maybe that is where the excess moisture came from. This is a total winner taste-wise as a mashed potato recipe, so I'll continue to work with it. The benefit of last minute prep prevention is worth further experimentation with this recipe.
