    I just use a little skimmed milk, lots of salt & pepper and sometimes add a little mustard or a little horseradish to give it a bit of a kick!X

    hmmmm I only have semi-skimmed milk in.. How many syns do you think i'll use if I just make it with 1/4pint s/s milk & can't believe it's not butter light? (1 tbsp) I only usually have like a heaped handful.

    Yeah, I don't think it'll be much.

    Semi-Skimmed milk is 13 syns per 568ml, so 1/4 pint would be like 3.5 syns :)

    You can mash potato with an egg in it which makes it really creamy, they used to do this in restaurants years ago so my nan used to tell me, i have tried it and its yummy. You cook and drain the potatoes as you would then mash then you break in an egg (or 2 if you have large amount to mash) and mix it in, it sounds horrible i know but its dosent curdle or scramble or anything i promise just makes it really creamy. And i think it would be ok to have for children cos the egg cooks from the heat of the potatoes i would think??????

    Beat me to it lol. I was raising their profile only yesterday on here!!

    To the OP though, they are very good. I had them in the cupboard for ages before I tried them, and was so impressed, I wish I hadn't waited for so long!

    I used to use quart and it was lovely but I ran out so tried 2 eggs, salt and pepper and nothing else. The mash was lovely and creamy. Thanks to 4busybee for that!
