    AZPARZYCH's Note:

    I like potatoes that have add-ins so you do not have to smother in gravy!

      I used Carisma potatoes (a low GI white potatoe) and used no salt for dietary reasons but otherwise followed recipe and was surprised when the DM not only ate her share but came back for seconds (I scaled the recipe back for 3 serves but the DM usually only eats about a 1/3 to 1/2 serve but this time she ate a full serve). thank you AZPARZYCH. made for Please Review My Recipe.

      This was easy to put together and a nice flavourful change to the regular ol' mashed potatoes. I used 1% milk with no problems. I halved the recipe and would say that the serving amount is perfect. Had with Maple Pork Medallions and mixed veggies. Made for Holiday Tag. Thanks AZPARZYCH! :)

      Great potatoes! I halved the recipe but made as directed otherwise. I really enjoyed this simple dish. Thanks AZPARZYCH. Made for Tic Tac Toe Spring 2010.
