So creamy and so good! I use fresh thyme and tarragon. I think this came from an old TOH.

Nice recipe - used little new red skinned-yellow fleshed taters & full fat buttermilk. Wonderful flavors & mouth feel. Used dried herbs - will make again using fresh when the tarragon is larger & thyme is spreading wildly. Came together fast - would make a great side for fish, fowl or even pork. Had it tonight with braised kale & no meat - awesome too! Thanks for a delicious recipe using my old friend buttermilk in a new way.

Very, very good and looks good too. Family and guests raved about this. Only change, quartered potatoes and only boiled about 10 minutes til done. This is a good company dish, tastes great and looks as if you went to a lot of trouble! Love it, Thanks pines506

What a great potato recipe!! We loved these. They are so creamy and the flavor combination is great. I followed the recipe exactly, except I added the green onions and herbs into the cream mixture AS I was heating it. Thanx for sharing this yummy recipe. We'll be eating these often.
