The Swedish mashed potatoes took a bit of getting used to for me. I love nutmeg in my apple pies and other sweets, but it's not a flavor I expect in my mashed potatoes. Of course I always ate them the way my first husband's Norwegian gramma made them, but when I make them myself I use just enough to add a hint of flavor. After all, without the nutmeg they're just plain mashed potatoes. ;)
