Yum! Very good. I thought it could use a bit more flavor. I added some peeled garlic cloves in with the potatoes to boil. I added 1/4 cup buttermilk and chives to the potatoes when mashing them. When it was time to uncover the potatoes, I topped them with freshly grated Parmesan cheese which made for a lovely golden brown top. Very tasty , will make again. Thank you for sharing!

Thsese were amazing! They were so simple and my stepson says these were "the best potatoes ever"! They were perfect as I could make the rest of dinner while these were in the oven out of the way. We didn't have any problems with these being dry as I added about a 1/4 cup milk just in case. I didn't use the paprika as I forgot I was out. And I didn't even get any pictures of these as they were inhaled too quickly! Thanks Doj for my new mashed potato recipe!!

I love dishes that can be prepped in advance of time! I scaled down to 3 servings & weighed the potatoes on my food scale. The result had good taste but it was rather dry. Next time, I'll add some milk to the mixture. Thanx Dojemi!
