I loved that it was easy!!! close to Mashed potatoes but easier. I didn't have bay leaves or white pepper. I will make again. I added extra butter it seemed a tiny bit dry but I still really enjoyed them. I may try the sourcream like suggested in the future.
These are flavorful and delicious potatoes! I didn't think they were dry at all and didn't change a thing with the recipe other than misreading and using black pepper instead of the white pepper. Oh well, they still tasted delish! The skins are so tasty, too, a nice change from mashed potatoes. I served these potatoes with "Parmesan Chicken" for a delicious dinner!
Made these tonight to go with some chicken. I thought they were a bit dry and I like my potatoes more creamy, so I gently stired in some low fat sour cream. So they werent as healthy as they could have been with that addition, but still good! And I only had salted butter so I ommitted the additonal salt to the recipe.
