Great recipe! Only change I make is to use two whole eggs, beaten. This will be the fourth Thanksgiving for which I've used this recipe,
These were the best mashed potatoes ever!!! I made them as written the night before and then the next morning put them in the crock pot on low for 4hrs. So easy!
I have made many dinners with a potato dish that is almost the same. I don't use egg whites and I add some garlic salt to the mix. You can make this 3-4 days in advance to save time on the actual day of the dinner. I usually leave a bit of chunk so that it's not totally creamed. No matter how many times I serve it the response is always the same. "fabulous, these are the best ." If you do it in the crockpot, be careful and do only on low. I've also preheated them in the microwave before putting them in the crockpot. No matter how you cook them, they are delish !!!
These were great and reminded me of the ones my mother in law makes. Easy to follow recipe!
I made these mashed potatoes on the day before Thanksgiving. The only change was that I mashed them with a mixer. The potatoes came out a bit chunky but they were quite good. I think next time I would add some milk when I'm mixing them. I did add milk when I served the leftovers a couple of days later, and that improved the consistency.
You people do realize you are supposed to take your turkey out to rest on the counter for 30-60 minutes? Perfect time to throw your potatoes in the oven.
The easiest way that we've found to reheat mashed potatoes and it doesn't take up oven space, is to put the potatoes in a glass bowl and put them oven simmering water (double boiler style). They turn out nice and moist. After making the potatoes put them in the same bowl that you'll use to warm them up. Simple clean up.
I make something similar but heat them up in a crockpot, works great and doesn't take up any oven room
They turned out pretty good, although I barely had enough room in the oven for them and the turkey.
This recipe was so-so. There are many other mashed potato recipes on this website that are really much better. Quite time consuming for not much deliciousness.- Theresa
