I first had this from a sister-in-law... I have since changed things up a bit.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

One holiday side dish that can be semi-homemade is mashed potatoes, and this is a great recipe to have handy. It tastes like you peeled, boiled, and mashed the potatoes yourself... except you didn't. The final result is creamy, buttery, and fluffy mashed potatoes.
