Duke’s Mayonnaise Mashed Potatoes

You won’t believe how unbelievably rich, luscious, and creamy mayonnaise makes your mashed potatoes. It may sound a little strange to put mayonnaise in mashed potatoes but they are the creamiest, best tasting mashed potatoes with a velvety texture. And there’s not even any butter of cream in them!

Next to the dressing, mashed potatoes are probably the most looked forward to thing on our Thanksgiving table. I’ve tried making mashed potatoes numerous ways- Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Garlic and Bacon Mashed Potatoes to name a few.

But hands down, mayonnaise mashed potatoes are my favorite. In addition to a fabulous flavor and texture, the mayonnaise also makes the potatoes fabulously white in color.

They look like fluffy clouds.  🙂

Duke’s Mayonnaise is the most loved mayonnaise in the south and that is what I use. It is also makes a heck of a chocolate cake.

To mash your potatoes, either use a potato masher, or even better, a Potato Ricer. I sometimes use my mixer, but you risk overdoing it with a mixer and turning the mashed potatoes into glue.

    I absolutely love this recipe and have been using it for a few years now, I always use best foods only because that’s what I always have on hand and use warm milk instead of reserving the cooking liquid because it makes for the creamiest most delicious potatoes!

  2. Amazing. I mashed these up in the kitchenaide with the flat paddle and then switched to the wisk for 2 minutes. A. Maz. Ing.

  3. Dukes mashed potatoes!!! Am I in heaven?
    This is the first Thanksgiving I’ve ever done alone. My husband always did Thanksgiving dinner, but he’s having to go to NJ to help his parents, and he’s making dinner there. So for whatever reason my family has decided to come to my house.
    Maybe I’d better not serve them the Dukes mashed, I could get stuck doing this every year?!?!

  4. Great idea. Now we can have mashed potatoes anytime without concerning ourselves with milk expiration dates. By the way, yes, they’re good. Thanks.

  5. No Stinkin’ Way!!! I love this idea – I use Duke’s as well – and tonight, when I make mashed potatoes – I’m using your recipe! Can’t wait!

    Oh I’ve never thought to add mayo to mashed potatoes! I bet this makes them so creamy, Christin. Looks delish!

  7. Mary @chattavore

    Would you believe that I have lived in Tennessee for my entire life and I never heard of Duke’s until about 6 years ago? It’s not a huge thing around here, but since I started using it I’m all, “Is THERE any other mayonnaise?!?!” I’ve never thought to use it in mashed potatoes, but gah I bet it’s good!

  8. Medha @ Whisk & Shout
