The water and broth didn't cover my potatoes, so I added enough to cook them. Also I didn't have any garlic cloves to I just added minced garlic after draining my cooked potatoes. Other than that, I made as directed. Next time I may add a touch more buttermilk, but other wise I would make them the same way. They went nicely with the grilled chicken we had. Thank you.

My husband enjoyed this! I didn't use any onions or garlic (he likes his potatoes w/ just salt & pepper!) & it was such a great way to use up some buttermilk! I didn't warm up it up first, only because I totally forgot to, but will remember that for next time. Thankfully the taste didn't seem to be ruined! The chicken broth was a nice touch. Thanks for sharing!

These had more flavor than the butter-and-milk kind I usually make! It's amazing to me how much less fat there is; I even used a low-fat chicken broth. Very, very tasty. I left out the scallions too. Thanks!
