I make my mashed potatoes using a combination of Yukon gold and Russet potatoes, cut up and then boiled with salt and pepper. I mash them adding in room-temperature whole milk mixed with a bit of heavy whipping cream and lots of real butter!

A dear departed family member taught me how to use the mixer to make mashed potatoes and they come out super creamy that way! I like using my stand mixer but a handmixer would work too, I'm sure!

Mashed Potatoes (No milk, butter or margarine) 1 1/2 lbs yukon gold potatoes, peeled and quartered Liberal amounts to Onion and Garlic Powder 3/4 Cup of Soy Milk Start in enough COLD water to cover potatoes. Bring to a boil. Cover and boil for 20 minutes or when a fork can easily pierce potatoes. NOTE: Cook too long they take on too much water and get sticky. Drain potatoes in colander. Mash or better yet rice potatoes into the same warm pan they cooked in. Add soy milk and stir just enough to make them smooth. NOTE: Stir too much and they get sticky. Drizzle olive oil over the top. ENJOY!

Mashed Potatoes and Turnips: Cream cheese, butter, and dill - YUM! I use a variety of potatoes - purple, white, and even white sweet potatoes and then add a bunch of turnips. The last step is to BAKE - it gives the top a nice golden appearance!

My secret is blending goat cheese into the potatoes. You can skip regular cream/milk if you use goat cheese and instead add vegetable broth or stock (mushroom is delicious) to thin the potatoes. Finish with fresh herbs. Yum!

I just discovered this while making Christmas dinner a few nights ago. You need sour cream in your mash potatoes. Maybe this is common knowledge, but everyone loved it. That, and some hard grated cheese. We used gruyere. It was delicious!!!!!!!!! Simple as that.

Since I follow a vegan diet, I make my mashed potatoes without any animal products. One of my favorite ways is to make them Italian style. I use red potatoes because they are my favorite and because they contain less gluten. I like to leave the skins on when mashing them for extra nutrition. Always use fresh herbs when possible. Add fresh basil, parsley, dill and oregano. Then add a bit of organic extra virgin olive oil. If you want creamier mashed potatoes, add a bit of almond milk. Then add a bit of sea salt. Blend with a hand-held or stand up electric mixer until creamy and until skins are less noticeable.

The secret ingredient in my mashed potatoes is potato. Boil the potatoes until soft. Drain, reserving the cooking water. Use a hand mixer to whip the potatoes, add a little salt (to taste) and some of the cooking liquid (to the consistency you prefer) as you whip. Lower in calories, vegan, dairy free and it tastes like potatoes.
