Bake the potatoes, on the grill. Get em nice and toasty, crunchify the skin.

Then remove the skin from the meat of the potato. Set aside for awesome twice baked tator skins (I'd add some cheese.)

Mix potato in a pan with half and half, a little cheddar cheese, salt, pepper, butter, more butter, and chives. Mash with a hand masher.

Eat.

Wife likes those, as long as it's the kind with no butter (she hates all dairy products--excpt ice cream).
I, can instantly (no pun intended) tell the difference between any instant and real potatoes and can sure tell when instant is used for or added to potato salad.
Having said I can tell the difference, I still like instant too--nothing wrong with 'em.

I can tell too, but the difference isn't worth the effort. Hmm how can 'man' live without butter...

Dunno, but I have made the mistake of buying microwave popcorn with 'extra butter' and heard about it for weeks--she doesn't even like the smell of it.
If she orders breakfast somewhere, she insists "NO Butter" on the toast.
In 20 years, I've never seen her drink a drop of milk of any kind--she eats Cheerios with SunnyD poured over them..

On a serous note: Hope shes taking D supplements or getting plenty of sunshine.

She does-- has more vits & mineral tablets than a health food store--keeps them in a big plastic partitioned box that she stole out of my big fishing tackle box.
But yes she also goes to the lake several times/week when not in school and lays around in the sun during the warm months.
Thanks for the concern--seriously.

I use instant whenever I make shepherds pie, but do love a good baked potato when Melanie makes them I will do like fats said but I am limited to how often I can do that FKN Heart condition. They wanted to send me to the local nursing home after I had my stroke in 04 and told them in no uncertain terms I was not dealing with the crap they call food at those places. The wife told the doctor,

" Forget it he would crawl the mile home before he would stay there !"

She is a great cook ! Right now I am eating one of her and Amanda's favorite snacks cheddar cheese with bacon on top, if I die now I will die a happy man !

Saw an episode of Alton Brown that I can't find on YouTube, probably taken down for copyright reasons. He shows how to make the best mashed potatoes that I've ever had.

this sounds vaguely like the recipe. We also tried to make the potato gratin from that episode. That however, didn't turn out as well :P

Love Alton Brown. I "discovered" him a few months ago, and I'm not sure why he wasn't on my radar before.

I make mine homestyle, with the peel on. Boil the potatoes, mash them by hand, add half/half and sour cream, then smooth out with an electric mixer.

Boiled potatoes. Add one stick of butter and add either a half or whole bar of cream cheese (depending on the amount) while the potatoes are still hot just after being strained. Salt. Pepper. Mash.

Creamiest potatoes ever.
