These mashed potatoes are SO good and loaded with flavor!I have made them every Thanksgiving for the last 3 years and the family loves them! Another thing I love about them is you can make them the day before and then just pop them in the oven the next day! These potatoes will NOT dissapoint! ENJOY!! :)
