This sure beats the usual plain mashed potatoes. These potatoes are loaded with flavor and you get the bonus of more veggies. I halved the recipe and followed the instructions as written. It doesn't take much more time than when you make regular mashed potatoes. I loved the addition of the broccoli, and I also chose to add the cheddar cheese. YUM! Made as an extra for the April 2011 Aus/NZ Swap.
