This is a friend's recipe. We had it served with flavorful pork tenderloin and it was great! Stephen is from England and so I say "cheers" for this nice side dish!

Excellent flavors. I didn't use a bit of the butter or half-and-half, only the chicken broth liquid. Great way to cut calories on a favorite recipe. I used a fat-free low sodium chicken broth since I didn't have any bouillon cubes and used just enough to cover the potatoes. Also used a chive and onion cream cheese since that was what I could find. I think it would take more than 1 1/4 lbs of potatoes to feed 6-8 people also. You can bet I'll be making these again and again. Thanks oolala :) Made for the Side special in Photo Forum :)
