A yellow meat potato makes a more buttery tasting mashed potato. I use Smart Balance margarine and fat free milk and it does not affect the flavor. It is so nice to be able to make these in advance. You may also leave the potato skin on; I always do. It is more nutritious and tastes delicious, and can save you some time.
