Yum! I halved the recipe and used a Granny Smith apple which I minced rather than pureed. This was a great taste sensation - especially with the nutmeg. Thanks Boomette for a great new way to make mashed potatoes more special. Made for Gimme 5 tag game.

This is our first time to have apples mixed with shallots and potatoes. It really challenges our palate but it was good. Thanks for letting us know how an apple mashed potatoes taste like. We had this for dinner. Made for PRMR.
