  1. Wow! You definitely need a "Cowboy's" appetite for these mashed potatoes! Who would have thought of adding veggies to this comfort food classic and have it taste so good? I have to admit I was a bit skeptical because I really do like my mashed potatoes with just the basics but this really did turn - Read more ...
  2. Even with added bacon this was nothing interesting.
  3. I omitted the pepper as I was serving this with Herbed Pork Chops in Mushroom Sauce I didn't think it would go well together. I used all red potatoes as that was what was on sale today and added more cheese and a 1/4 c. hot milk to loosen the mash up a little. (It - Read more ...
  4. I have to admit my expectations were pretty low for this recipe despite the reviews. It just sounded kind of strange and I didn't think it would turn out with a nice consitency with no milk, cream, sour cream, etc. I was very wrong and the reviews were right.

For those of you who found this to be a little on the dry side...try adding some cream cheese or sour cream. This usually keeeps the potatoes - Read more ...
  8. Absolutely fabulous! The only change I made was to add in some green peas. Will definitely make this one again. Thanks for sharing Bruticus.:)
  9. It's so simple I'm almost embarrased I didn't think of it. I added WAY more garlic and had to omit the corn because I was out (will definitely add it next time). Used real butter but only about 3 tablespoons plus about 1/3 cup milk and sharp cheddar. My kids and husband loved it! Boy - Read more ...
  10. These potatoes are awesome! I used extra jalepenos and a little milk. Will definately make again.
