I have never added butter or milk to mashed potatoes. I usually make them with a bit of seasoned salt and a bit of a margarine substitute and/or a bit of light mayonnaise.

To me, that is just a plain boiled potato with a little flavoring, not a true mashed potato. I guess to each his own.

A true mashed potato is a potato that's been mashed. Add milk and butter and it is still a mashed potato, but no longer the pure article. Add garlic, mayo (ick!) or chives (double ick!) and it is farther still from true purity.


Add cabbage or Brussels sprouts with a little pepper and it becomes bubble-and-squeak.


Add eggs or flour or both and it becomes a potato pancake.


And so forth!

There's certainly more than one way to do it.

My grandmother and mom always use powdered milk, flour mixed with a warm water. The ONLY way I'll eat gravy. My Ex mother in law made it that way. Tasted like glue to me.
