Found on the menus of many simple bistros in France, its a perfect side to just about anything. Lucy Waverman developed this recipe after her visit to Dijon.

Lovely! The fresh herbs and the cheese made it special.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put potatoes & garlic into a large saucepan, add enough water to just cover & bring water to a boil; reduce heat to medium low & simmer, covered, 20 - 25 minutes until potatoes & garlic are very tender.
  2. Drain well, return to saucepan & put over low heat for a minute or so to dry out potatoes, shaking the saucepan so they don't stick.
  3. Combine milk & butter in a microwave-safe bowl & nuke on high for 1 - 2 minutes until milk is steaming & butter starts to melt; stir milk mixture, cheese & seasonings into potatoes.
  4. Squeeze potatoes through a ricer OR mash roughly with a fork, then beat until smooth with an electric mixer, being careful not to overdo it or they will become gluey.
  5. Spoon into a warm serving dish; sprinkle with parsley & serve immediately.
