2 pounds potatoes : 1 cup milk : 4 tablespoons butter : 1/3 cup heavy cream : 1 1/2 teaspoons salt -- Serves 6.

Remember for Thanksgiving lots of people aren't eating full "servings" of anything. So consider the volume of food before you do your proportions. :) Happy Cooking!!

Great point. But: leftovers!
