    Very nice creamy texture! Definitely tasted "full fat"! I did season the potatoes with a little salt, pepper & garlic powder.

    I used herbs cream cheese spread. These potatoes had a very good taste. I sprinkle mine with fresh chives. Thanks Nif :) Made for Photo tag.

    Very good for being a healthier version of mashed potatoes. Ran out of red potatoes so I used russets and doubled the recipe so I would have leftovers. My potatoes were "gluey" but that was because of the russets and not the recipe. Whipped creamed cheese made for easier mashing and didnt have to wait for anything to melt. Chicken stock gives the potatoes such a nice flavor. Will make again using red potatoes and sure we will enjoy! Thank you Nif for posting this recipe. Made and reviewed for Everyday is a Holiday tag game.

    For a low fat dish, these were excellent- hardly tasted low fat! We really enjoyed them with chicken. It's definitely worth boiling the potatoes in the broth- it produces a lovely flavour. Thanks very much for a keeper! Made for Please Review My Recipe.


I love great food and I particularly like trying cuisines new to me! Although I don't prepare as much food as I used to, creating in my kitchen is still one of my favourite things to do. Enjoy!
