    I have a very picky eater in my house. And he absolutely loved this recipe! I didn't have heavy cream, so i used 10%, and it worked well. I think this is going to be a family favourite recipe! Simple, yet delicious!

    Quick, easy standard recipe. I added horseradish because I like horseradish mashed potatoes

    It was great. I learned the trick about putting the potatoes back in pot and on top of hot burner that is turned off to evaluate remaining water.

    They turned out awesome! I used a KitchenAid hand mixer instead of a potato masher and it was still chunky enough for my liking

    This was the perfect mashed potatoes, waiting 10 minutes after the cooking time was brilliant to add butter. My family loved this recipe, I’ll be making this again for sure!

    So easy! I added a little bit of milk, so they weren’t so thick.
