Tasty, flavourful potatoes! I love the addition of the carrot for both the colour boost and added flavour. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.

I loved this recipe for potatoes. The carrot adds such a wonderful color and the flavor is suberb. I used the leftovers the next day to make potato "pancakes" for breakfast and those were great too!

Better than regular mashed potatoes. I can see why this made it into someone's best of the year cookbook. It was delicious, even with making a healthy version of it using fat free sour cream, light tub margarine and half the salt. The carrots give it a rich and buttery taste. Definitely recommended!
