Very tasty mashed potatoes, we love the cabbage added to them! Just made half a recipe with a half small cabbage i needed to use up. We like the skin so I left the skin on and I used becel margarine instead of the butter and a very light touch of 2% milk. They look quite yellow cus I used Yokon gold potatoes. Easy and tasty, I will make them often, thanks for poslting.
