So after making the Loaded Baked Potato Chowder last week I got to thinking...why couldn't I make mashed potatoes in the DCB? So I did. I just cut them in half, added some milk, baked them 11 minutes, moved them around and baked them another 10 minutes then mashed with the Mix N Chop, added milk and butter and voila - smooth, tasty, FRESH mashed potatoes, in the microwave in about 25 minutes! I took them to my in-laws' house for dinner that night and everyone enjoyed them! And my MIL was jealous that I could do real mashed potatoes that quickly with so few steps! **ETA - to clarify I baked them in the microwave!
