Just started making dinner and realized SO used the last bit of milk this morning. He also took my car to work, which has my debit card in it. So I can't go get milk.



What can I substitute milk for in mashed potatoes? On Yahoo a few people are saying to double up on butter (so just water and double butter) or sour cream, or cream cheese. I have all of that. What would you use? Which tastes better? TIA :D

I normally use a heaped spoon full of butter then mash it all in, then slowly add the sour cream untill its smooth and creamy.

Thanks guys!



I'm making a cheesy ground beef mashed potato layer casserole thing :lol: Brown gravy, 1 cup of water, Worcestershire sauce and half a packet of lipton onion soup mix in the meat. And then garlic cheddar potatoes, with shredded cheese on top. NOM

Water. Seriously. It makes them so fluffy. Then you can add butter and salt or whatever.

I did the normal water, then butter, then a few spoonfuls of sour cream. Wasn't as creamy as I like, so I added another spoonful of butter. They turned out good! I have the whole thing under the broiler now, just waiting for the cheese to melt :D

I don't know how much water you add but I was surprised when I tried it.
