"A nice variation of mashed potatoes that goes with their meatloaf. They use Yukon gold and they do use real potatoes there. They probably have the milk mixture made up and use in the mixing bowl as needed"

These are BUTTERY in all the right ways. SO GOOD, both with and without gravy (I posted photos of both). This was the perfect side for my roast and I will definitely make these again.
