Old Fashioned Mashed Potatoes

Old Fashioned Mashed Potatoes are the perfect side dish for dinner.

Old Fashioned Mashed Potatoes just like my Mawmaw use to serve them. These potatoes are made with real butter and cream. I can taste the difference as soon as my fork enters my mouth 🙂 I think these mashed potatoes are so much better than using margarine and milk, but sometimes I do not always have real butter and cream in my fridge so I do substitute.

Old Fashioned Mashed Potatoes are the perfect side dish for dinner. These creamy and delicious potatoes go well with Open-Face Shredded Pork.
