      I scaled this back for 2 serves and used Carisma potatoes (a low GI potato) and found there was plenty for 3 of us, made as per instructions to create a lovely smooth and tasty mash. Thanks to weekend cooker for the recommendation and Sydney Mike for posting, made for I Recommend tag game.

      Loved this dish. The slight tang from the buttermilk gives it it's uniqueness. You get a nice crunch from the onions. I whipped mine till it was smooth but next time I think I will just mash them so there's a bit more texture. I threw them under the broiler for a few minutes to give them a nice brown color. Yum! Thanks for posting. :)

      I believe that this was the first time adding onions to mashed potatoes, really enjoyed it. Also liked the idea of buttermilk added here too. It really gave this AN EXTRA ZING to it. Have to put this in my files. Would be great for that weeknight hurry up dish for us and the kids. Definately a Zaar Stars hit.
