The recipe is from Emeril's new cookbook, "Emeril 20-40-60."These mashed potatoes are delicious with Emeril's Cider-Brined Turkey and Creamed Mustard Greens.

    I think this may have been my best batch of mashed potatoes yet. I didn't buy buttermilk (I never do), but put 1 1/2 tbsp. white vinegar in my milk. I was also very generous with the white pepper. One think this recipe doesn't say, which is a given, is to drain the potatoes before adding the milk and butter. I could just see someone following merrily along and not draining them. After a household vote after taste-testing, I added two pinches of roasted garlic which really boosted the flavor
