The most fantastic mashed potatoes I've ever had in my life. I've made this dish for several dinner parties and each time, it's gotten rave reviews. it's easy to halve too, which is nice since usually I'm only cooking for 1-2 people. Courtesy of Bon Appetit, by way of epicurious.

I love sage! My husband said he prefer these to regular, and garlic mashed potatoes. Next time I might reduce the liquid a bit because I like my potatoes a bit firmer.
