I took SusieQusie suggestion and made to fit serve size wise - I used 6 ounzes carrots and 9 ounzes of Carisma potatoes (low GI potatoes) and then followed through with the butter (1 tablespoon) milk (2 tablesploons appoximately), nutmeg (a sprinkle) and a grind of salt and pepper and came up with a mash that 3 of us enjoyed and polished of, thank you SusieQusie, made for I Recommend tag game and recommended by AZPARZYCH.
Very good! Made as written and the amounts of milk and butter were spot on. Served with meatloaf and gravy, however the potatoes didn't need gravy. Made for I Recommend Holiday Tag.
Tasty and satisfying. I made a half batch with a little extra potato. I did have to add a fair amount more salt and pepper than the recipe called for and I added some garlic powder. More butter would be good, too. Like **Mandy** I found the carrots didn't mash well using a hand-held masher. I didn't mind that too much, but it made for more marbled appearance rather than a golden appearance.
I omitted the nutmeg. I used Mrs Dash seasoning instead of salt. I did half the recipe. Thanks Susie :) Made for 123 hit wonders
I thought I'd try this as a way to get my toddler DD to eat carrots, it didn't work unfortunately my hubby wasn't to taken with this either. I thought this was quite nice but the carrots didn't mash in a smooth as I would have liked by using just a hand masher. I think that to get a smoother consistency a mix master would need to be used. Loved the touch of nutmeg though.
the nutmeg added an interesting flavor, i wish i could say ill be making these again soon, but i just couldnt get DBF and DF to buy into the whole "orange potatoes" but i had them for dinner tonight and enjoyed them, i made up a plate for DBF's father and he ate them, no question to why they were orange :) thanks for the recipie
