The BEST mashed potatoes ever! I did add a couple of cloves of fresh mashed garlic to the cooking water, but the secrets to this recipe are the buttermilk and brown butter. I made them a day ahead and they reheated beautifully. I mixed in a little extra buttermilk to thin/fluff them up a bit. This recipe is a keeper! PS: I warmed the milk and buttermilk before mixing them into the potatoes.

I have many mashed potato recipes but this is, by far, my favorite. One very nice feature is that it's delicious as is without needing gravy or additional butter when served. It presents beautifully, doubles very well, and best of all, can be made ahead. You will love this recipe!

While this sounds like a great recipe, should this really be listed under budget cooking? I don't use buttermilk on anything else but fried chicken and I don't make that much. Why buy something I don't use that much and wasted money. My husband and I only spend about $50 a week on groceries, as that is all we have for food. I want good, cheap, and quick recipes for what money I do have.

kimber...you can always make buttermilk substitute...i do it all the time...1 cup regular milk and a couple of table spoons of vinegar or lemon juice...just watch it thicken up!

This is such a good recipe, I doubled it and ate it for a week without it ever getting hard. The butter makes it soft and a substitute of vinegar and milk instead of buttermilk worked fine. Will definitely make it again!
