These were good, but we had to add salt and garlic. Without the salt and garlic it was kind of bland.

I love mashed potatoes, sour cream and chives so had to give this recipe a try. My potatoes were rather large so I added extra butter and sour cream. I think next time I would prefer peeling the potatoes but all in all very tasty! Thank you for posting this recipe Marie. Made and reviewed for the Red Tag Game in the TOTM forum.

I have never been a fan of "flavored" potatoes, but wanted something different tonight. I am converted! Very easy and not overpowering.
