Every holiday or "get together" with my siblings, someone always asks if we are going to have "Paula's creamed potatoes". Being the oldest of 5 children, I learned to cook at a young age and was always experimenting with additions to foods that I thought tasted good. This was one of my experiments that everyone loved. I have no idea what the measurements are, I just add to taste. I even make my instant potatoes this sure does make instant taste better!!

How to Make Paula's Creamed Potatoes


  1. **Cut up and boil the amount of potatoes you will need to feed the number of people you are serving. For our family of approx 15 people I usually use 5 lbs. red potatoes. (If I am cooking for my family in a hurry at home and using instant potatoes, I just use the scale on the box.)
  2. While potatoes are hot, mash them with a masher, add the stick of margarine cut into pieces, a little milk, and ***2 or 3 heaping tablespoons of mayonnaise. (I would suggest starting with 2 T and taste after you have blended in the other spices to see if you want more. I love mayo, so I use more) Blend using a mixer. Add more milk a little at a time as you mix until you get the potatoes the creamy consistency you want them. Add generous amounts of salt, pepper, and garlic powder aned continue mixing with the mixer. We love seasoned food, so I do use alot of each of these spices, but I continually taste as I add them.
  3. **the size of the bowl of potatoes depends upon how many people you are feeding.

    ***the amount of mayonnaise depends upon your taste preference. (see step 2 above)
