    I love The Barefoot Contessa recipes and this one is no exception. Rich, decadent and dreamy... these mashed taters were amazing. I made them exactly as written, they were quick and really easy to make with excellent results. Served with corn and chicken for a memorable comfort meal. Made for What's on the Menu? Tag game 2017.
