If you are the type that loves really creamy, yummy, hot, fresh, just absolutely delicious mashed potatoes then these are the ones for you. Ever since I saw the recipe for these on The Pioneer Womens blog I have wanted to make them. So I finally I got to make them.

I made these mashed postates for dinner with garlic chicken and a green salad.
