      I made these for the first time Christmas Day. It was a gamble that paid off. I added one touch to mine though...marshmellows. I did notice that the sugar buttermilk mixture became frothy while baking. Before I added my marshmellows I mashed the potatoes slightly to better mix everything; then I added the marshmellows on top and returned to the over for five minutes. Everyone love it!

      I really wish that I could give more starts for this dish. It's simply delicious and is truly worthy of the Holiday table. It's simple to make. I baked the potato in the oven this morning while baking and it only took 15 mins to get the potato in the dish and make the topping. The flavors work together exquisitely and it worked with my diabetic changes. Splenda for sugar, skim milk and lemon juice for the buttermilk and heart healthy margarine. This is a keeper for sure!
