    A lot like my own mash, but I never use pepper and I personally wouldn't use as much margarine for 6 potatoes. I also prefer to use a ricer, as this doesn't spoil the texture or taste of the potato. - 10/5/08

    I make mashed potatos like this all the time getting away from instant I buy a 50 lb bag so I have them all the time only I usually use non fat milk instead and use my electric mixer to take out any lumps - 12/21/07
