I was taught to whip my potatoes with chicken broth its pretty tasty!  Or just lots of real butter and milk

Heavy Cream works well too!?!?!

I like to throw in butter, milk and some minced garlic.  The heat from the potatoes during the mixing process is all that is needed to cook the garlic.  Then put in a 9X13 cooking pan and throw under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp up the top...

Do you add the yolks as well?  Or just the whites?  Does, mixing it up totally emulsify the eggs?  Or can you definitely tell the eggs are in there due to the change in texture?

We add the whole egg. It gets mixed up fairly well but you will see tiny bits of egg in there.

Does it discolor the potatoes?  Turn them a bit yellow?

only if you added dozens of eggs =)

you want to try to not mix it in too much, because the yolk does get powdery and mixes away into nothing. the whites stand up, but eggs dont look much like eggs when only the whites are there
