Of course not Ishbel. When I first replied, I remembered the earlier thread but was just to lazy to look up the link.

All I can say it that it's pretty hard to screw up mashed potatoes, no matter which method you use. Kinda like muffins, though - don't work them too hard or you'll be sorry.

Mud, that's what I thought too, but then saw a FN Food Challenge and one of the chefs did something wrong with the mashed potatoes and ended up putting the dish in the oven to try to dry out.

Are you kidding me, mashed potato making is almost an art. I would never eat it if it's not done to my taste (well that goes to pretty much everything) I'll just seat in the restaraunt or home and eat bread.

I use a small hand mixer. Leave a little potato water in the pan you boiled the potatoes. Mix. Add butter and some warm milk if you need more liquid.

I like to use a masher and leave some chunks. My favorite is a Blue cheese mashed with skin on redskin pots, bacon, garlic, leeks, sour cream, heavy cream, butter and blue cheese. I usually make this with steak, Whith the leftovers the next day I wll make a sandwich with the sliced steak and mashed between a couple slices of good french bread...mmmmmmmm

Cholestorol is not a problem for me yet, just had it checked
