Mashed Potatoes With Onion and Dill

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sarah_Jayne

Can there be too many different ways to make mashed potatoes? The dill in these gives a bit of an Eastern European flare to normal spuds.

I had too many russets on hand so I used those in place of red potatoes. I also had to use dried dill because fresh dill isn't growing in our garden until summer. The mashed potatoes accompanied fish fillets and asparagus for a delicious, simple meal. I was careful not to add too much buttermilk as per the advice of another reviewer. A pinch of white pepper was added. Thanks for posting! Reviewed for Veg Swap #19-2010.
