This is so much more than just a delicious, easy to make side dish. It is my childhood memory. Carnation evaporated milk was what I survived on since I was a newborn. The aroma and light sweetness of the dish is so satisfying.

Never a doubt!

I have always used Carnation Milk in my mashed potatoes, mainly because that's what Mother did...it just would be Mashed Potatoes without the Carnation!
