Ooooooooooooh myyyyyyyyyyy God!!!!!!!! If you had been sitting next to me after eating these potatoes you would have thought I was Meg Ryan in that famous scene from When Harry Met Sally. To make this even more orgasmic I used cream instead of milk and added some chives and fresh dill. Thanks, Bethany, with this dish people at the next table will always want to have what I'm having!
