This is the best way to mash potatoes for me, love the creme fraiche in there. I leave them a bit lumpy, and this last time, tossed in a couple cloves of peeled garlic to boil with the potatoes.
I also added garlic gloves and salt when boiling the potatoes. I used chicken broth when mashing and left out the butter. Added a sprinkling of fresh chopped chives. Used white pepper These are rich and creamy.
Oh, my...these are rich and delicious! Like Kasha, I also added garlic cloves in the boiling water. I added parmesan cheese as well as I was serving these with your Yogurt chicken. I did have to add a little half & half since I added the parmesan and that thickened them up a bit. Outstanding, we ate every bite! Thanks for sharing this recipe, L!
