These pink potatoes were awesome. We really enjoyed the flavor and texture of this tasty dish. I used Yukon gold potatoes and organic carrots and sweet onions, they were so good in this dish. This was the perfect comfort food dish. I did take your suggestion and served the potatoes with Hamburger Gravy. So happy that I did. I had a very happy hubby and no leftovers, it was that good. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe. Made as written and wouldn't change a thing. Made for Think Pink 2014.

I used baby red potatoes and that made it even more "pink". Delicious potatoes, and a recipe I will make again. Thanks for sharing.

A little different mashed potato! The carrots were quite good in it. I did cook the carrots quite a bit so they would mash better. I didn't add any sugar while cooking, because I thought the carrots were sweet enough without it. Thnx for sharing your recipe Sage. Made for THINK PINK Oct 2009.
