I love potatoes so tried this. Yummy and easy! I used the evaporated milk but wonder if you could substitute regular milk? Also I mashed the potatoes instead of using a mixer cause my family likes the semi lumpy texture better.

I made this for our Christmas "Friends Potluck". It was a hit. I used Yukon Gold potatoes, low fat sour cream, pancetta, and added 3/4 cup ( or more) of Pecorino Romano cheese, it really helps to give it that extra special kick, making it a 5 star.

Quick and good!
