    Wow this was good! I used smoked white cheddar cheese instead of plain but follwed the recipe exactly otherwise.

    My wife was at Red Lobster this last Wednesday. The meal included the mashed potatoes. She asked for gravy, the waitress told her they don't have any and they don't need it. She reluctantly tried them, ate them all on the spot. Made me look up a recipe and I made this one. It was exactly like the ones she had at R.L.

    The family loved the mashed potatoes. I didn't have a problem with it being too salty. I did use unsalted butter, maybe that is the difference. Thank you for this recipe.

    I made this dish last night and it is really great! I had a little trouble finding the white cheddar though. The only thing is, we found it extremely salty. When I make it again I will reduce the salt to 14 teaspoon. Salt CAN be added at the table.
