I just LOVE mashed potatoes. I sometimes use instant, but never on Thanksgiving.
Today, my KitchenAid 7 quart stand mixer came in real handy when I made our yummy mashed potatoes.
I want to know, what do you put in your mashed potatoes? Do you have a secret ingredient?
I used my 7 Qt for potatoes today too! This year I was super fatty and used a stick of butter, salt and some heavy whipping cream with a little milk too.

I usually make mine pretty simply with potatoes and butter/margarine, milk, salt and pepper! Although at Halloween, I’ve been known to add green food coloring, stick them into a plastic bag with the end snipped off, and “Ice” them onto the plate in the shape of snakes. I then add olive and pimento to make eyes and a tongue. I suppose that’s a special ingredient, although it’s no secret ’cause I got it from a Bett Crocker Halloween cookbook! 😀
I use butter, milk, a little 1/2 & 1/2, salt, pepper and garlic.

I know I’m strange but I put Mayo in them. I learned it from my husband he makes better mashed potatoes than me.

Sour cream, butter, half & half (real low cal…LOL)
I also use Mayo in them. It comes out delicious! I love mashed potatoes!

My SIL makes Pioneer Woman’s potatoes for the holidays and I can’t eat them without all that cream cheese!!
