    JoJoStar's Note:

    The most delicious mashed potatoes ever! The scallions provide sweetness, and the brown butter adds a nuttiness. Please follow ingredient amounts exactly...I know it may seem like a lot of scallions but its not.

      These were great. I served this with my brined turkey. What a great side dish. Can't wait to try these with a baked ham.

      Very good! Family loved them. Had to leave out the onions for my 8 yr old, but they were still delicious! Thanks JoJo!

      Browned butter always makes me happy, and this is no exception! These potatoes get great flavor from the browned butter. I'll make these again for sure. Thanx for sharing the recipe.
