Linda's Fluffiest Mashed Potatoes You Will Ever Eat

"These potatoes are so light and fluffy and delicious. Try them and see for yourself... NOTE: If you use anything other than large potatoes cut down on the sour cream and milk, but still use the eggs. DO NOT leave out the eggs. The eggs are what make the potatoes fluffy. The eggs do get cooked when they are mixed up into the potatoes. For best results, use a potato masher. If you over beat them with an electric mixer, they will get gooey and starchy as the gluten breaks down, and they won't be light and fluffy."

In a large pan, boil potatoes with salt until tender, 20-25 minutes.

Step 2

Drain water, and add remaining ingredients.

Step 3

Mash until smooth with a potato masher. Do not whip continually with a beater, or the potatoes will get gooey and starchy as the gluten breaks down.

Step 4

Note: You can turn these potatoes into garlic mashed potatoes by adding 3 cloves roasted garlic when you mash.

Step 5

You can turn these potatoes into garlic onion mashed potatoes by adding sauteed onions and roasted garlic to your taste while mashing.

Step 6

For another tasty dish try adding shredded Cheddar cheese and cooked broccoli pieces.

When my husband was planning our dinner for Valentine's Day he asked me what sides I would like to have with our fish and I thought of these potatoes. I have been wanting to make them but we don't have potatoes often so this was the right time . So soft and fluffy. Every bite was delicious!

These deserve more than five stars according to my family! They couldn't be tastier or fluffier. Won't make them any other way from now on!
