Really delicious and creamy. I used Yukon Gold potatoes along with dried herbs. I loved the rich taste that the buttermilk provided without a lot of added fat. This was served with fried chicken, peas and sourdough biscuits for a delicious Easter feast.

Delicious! These potatoes were a wonderful change from standard mashed potatoes. The buttermilk gave the potatoes a creamy texture and added a sour cream-like tang. We really loved the flavor the fresh herbs added. I used 8 large red potatoes (unpeeled) instead of the yukon gold. Also, I added 6 cloves of garlic to the potatoes while they cooked. Thank you for sharing!

I really enjoy recipes like this, versatile ones that take you where you lead them. These potatoes were served with Southwestern Meatloaf, so I took them to the SW. I subbed cilantro for the tarragon & parsley + added garlic & a few drops of Tobasco for a bit of a heat level. Like Ev, I liked that they were not loaded w/butter & got their creamy flavor from the combo of buttermilk & seasonings. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

Very, very good. Loved the buttermilk addition and the fact that I didn't need to use a load of butter. The minced herbs were delicious in this and we happily scarfed this down with pork chops.

I didnt change anything on the recipe but to used dried tarragon instead of the fresh. These were very rich and flavorful mashed potatoes. The buttermilk and fresh spices really enhanced them. Thanks Marcie for a recipe that we all loved!

Wonderful recipe, I always make these potatoes when I make recipe 132130 Easy Low Fat Chicken Souvlaki due to the fact I only have buttermilk on hand for this chicken. Fantastic flavors that my family always looks forward to. Thank you so much Parsley for this keeper!

Oh my these were fabulous! Had them with barbecued ribs, steamed broccoli, salad, and pineapple sherbert. They are perfect! Thanks for sharing a keeper. Tomorrow we are having the leftovers in a breakfast casserole and looking forward to it.
