    This was the perfect mashed potatoes, waiting 10 minutes after the cooking time was brilliant to add butter. My family loved this recipe, I’ll be making this again for sure!

    Followed the directions to a T and came out great. I've never placed the potatoes back in the pot in fear they'd burn. Now I know the difference. Will make again!
