    Elmotoo's Note:

    I found reference to this recipe at a Budapest Tourist Guide. There it was called 'Mashed potatoes with mustard seeds and deep fried onion'. I couldn't find a recipe but I did sort of find the components at various websites then I combined them & reworked it a bit. The onions need to be very soft & caramelized. This looks like a bowl of sweet potatoes with all that paprika! I would love some feedback!

      Interesting combination of ingredients, really brought mashed potatoes to a new level. The paprika was a nice addition, did however change the color of my potatoes.

      So good! I made the recipe as directed except I left out the egg. Great flavors from the onions and paprika. Thanks!
