Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons margarine
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Wash potatoes thoroughly, cut into uniform pieces, and drop into salted, boiling water. Cook potatoes until they are fork-tender. Take potatoes out of boiling water and drain. Peel most of the potatoes; make sure you leave about one fifth of each not peeled. Place potatoes into a bowl with the other ingredients and mash the potatoes. I would not use an electric mixer; you do not want to take out all of the lumps. Transfer the whipped potatoes to a serving dish, and serve the mashed potatoes.

    the potatoes should be started in COLD water not boiling water or they will cook faster on the outside and not the inside.

    Adam it doesn’t say anything about baking the potatoes just boil them like you normally would theirs really nothing special about this recipe

    cracker barrel doesn’t use instant mash potatoes…. it is still cooked the old fashion way. boiling them in water, butter, milk, salt, pepper. thats all they use

      How much water to add really depends on how big your pot is. What I do is I cut my potatoes, put them in the pot and add enough water to cover the potatoes by 1/2 to 1 inch of water.

    Sure would be nice if the instructions were COMPLETE…
    After having a bowl of lumpy whipped potatoes…
    The recipe fails to mention taking them to completion.

      Hot Potato,
      After you whip the potatoes you serve them. I shouldn’t have left you in the lurch. I’ll change the instructions to tell you to serve them 😉

    I would agree with Joe after eating there yesterday. They not only taste like instant mash potatoes, they look like instant mash potatoes. They were rather insipid and I even asked the waitress if they were real. She said they were but you could not prove it by me. Cracker Barrel is great for breakfast but lunch and dinner meals have been a disappointment. However, the price is reasonable so I can’t complain there but the meals to me taste reasonable….not great.

    They don’t make them like this anymore. I ordered them this past weekend and they are using instant now. What a disappointment.

    Not sure I follow the description correctly. It says we should bake, not boil the potatoes. The recipe directions only call to drop potatoes in boiling water.
    No baking directions?
