Hands down, no question, mashed potatoes are my absolute favorite side dish. I have loved them since I was little. My Grandma would make extra just for me every Thanksgiving because she knew, even as a tiny 8 year old, I could put down some mashed potatoes. So this recipe is my favorite ever.
So easy to make, nothing crazy but lots of goodness packed in. Creamy and so buttery. These are not diet mashed potatoes if there even is such a thing. These are special occasion, comfort food, stretchy pants mashed potatoes.
Make these potatoes and you might just become the designated mashed potato maker for life. Not a bad job, if you ask me.
