I wouldn't thought of adding the lemon, but I used your recipe, but I used 1/2 potatoes and 1/2 parsnips, just for a twist. But it would definitely be great just with potatoes. Absolutely. Just a light flavor which I liked. My guests already called me as they ate at 4:30 and are getting ready to have dessert and then head out to a movie. Thank you, next time, no parsnips, just potatoes, but either way, very yummy, and the lemon was a great nice light taste.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot of salted water, boil the potatoes until they are almost falling apart.
  2. Drain potatoes thoroughly and return to pot.
  3. Add the butter and mash the potatoes with a potato masher.
  4. When butter is incorporated, season with salt to taste.
  5. Just before serving, finely shred the zest of the lemon right into the potatoes and stir well.
  6. Note: (that's right, there is NO milk in this recipe, but you can squeeze in the lemon juice if desired).
