It’s not a holiday at our house without mashed potatoes on the table.

Creamy Mashed Potatoes The Southern Lady Cooks

My family likes mashed potatoes to be lumpy! I seldom have any of these left over after a meal but they make great potato pancakes, also.

I usually make these for the whole family at Christmas and Thanksgiving and have used as much as 10 lbs. of potatoes at a time and go home empty handed.

Everyone heads for the mashed potatoes because they are afraid we are going to run out!  My girls could probably eat five pounds of these themselves.  I will think I have made enough during the process and I never do.  I am not sure I could make enough of these to feed my family at one meal.  I do think the evaporated milk makes a big difference in these potatoes.

Mashed potatoes are always on my holiday table.

8 medium to large potatoes
1 stick butter or margarine
Salt and pepper to taste
1 can evaporated milk

Cover peeled potatoes with water and boil until tender. Drain. Add butter, salt and pepper, and enough evaporated milk until consistency you like. I always hand mash my potatoes. This is what my family likes about them. Enjoy.

Mashed potatoes are good for any meal! At Thanksgiving, we always serve them with our Barley Casserole. They compliment each other perfectly!

In the summer time, serve these with my Maple Baked Beans with Sausage. They go together great for a cookout!
