Nif's Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes With Sauteed Leeks

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Nif_H

I kept this recipe light but you can add butter if you want to! It's an easy way to make potatoes with a little twist. I find that the salt and pepper are necessary because you don't use the salty butter. Enjoy!

We really enjoyed this but I think I would cut the amount of buittermilk back as it was a little sloppy for our tastes but the flavours of the mash were fantastic and really complimented recipe #361010. Thank You Nif, made for 123 Hits tag game.
