RachelT's grandmother's Mashed Potatoes

In my opinion, these are about the best tasting mashed potatoes. They are a Thanksgiving favorite in my family! There's quite a bit of fat in the recipe, however, the recipe also serves 12-16 people. I have made some corrections to make it "safer" for us. Since these are baked, the recipe also works really well if prepared the night before. You can just stick the dish in the fridge and pop it in the oven when you're ready to bake.
