Fan did not react well to Jill’s “note.” “Can we please discuss this? I'm confused and alarmed all at the same time by this. Mostly alarmed,” a fan on Reddit wrote. “Mashed potatoes and potato salad aren't even close to being the same thing. What the hell?” another Redditor replied.

“You can't just serve mashed potatoes cold and call it potato salad. So weird,” a fan wrote, with another replying, “Even worse- you can't heat up potato salad and call it mashed potatoes!”

Jill previously horrified fans with her recipe for “Slow Cooker Lasagna,” in which she used canned mushrooms. Jill has often come under fire for her love of canned goods, and some fans even speculated she obtains the tinned items at her mother Michelle’s house to save money. Her family doesn’t have a steady source of income with her husband Derick Dillard in law school.

What do you think of Jill using her mashed potato recipe as a potato salad recipe? Is it sacrilegious? Sound off in the comments below.
