Yukon potatoes are really delicious especially when making mashed. I love this recipe but personally prefer roasting my potatoes and leaving the skin on. Usually I make potatoes just like this recipe but I'll add a little cream cheese and some green onion...then after they are mashed I like to baked them in the oven til the top is's so good!

This the only way to make good homemade mashed potatoes. It was how my mother and grandma made them. Then you use the potato water to help make the gravy.
