Old Fashioned Mashed Potatoes just like my Mamaw use to serve them. These 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. These creamy and delicious potatoes go well with Open-Face Shredded Pork.
