  1. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain.
  2. Mash potatoes with a potato masher or an electric mixer on Low in a bowl until smooth.
  3. Heat butter and half-and-half in a small saucepan over medium heat until butter is melted and half-and-half is warmed, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Mash or beat butter mixture, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder into mashed potatoes until potatoes are light and fluffy. Stir additional half-and-half, 1 tablespoon at a time, into potatoes for creamier consistency.

I used fat free half-n-half and I increased the garlic powder to a full teaspoon. These mashed potatoes were fluffy and delicious--they remind me of the potatoes Grandma used to make.

Used this recipe for Christmas dinner... absolutely awesome. Light and fluffy, and really good when reheated too. You may want to add more salt/pepper/other spices if you like more flavor, but these were great as is!
