Mashed Potatoes With Onion and Dill

"Can there be too many different ways to make mashed potatoes? The dill in these gives a bit of an Eastern European flare to normal spuds."

    I had too many russets on hand so I used those in place of red potatoes. I also had to use dried dill because fresh dill isn't growing in our garden until summer. The mashed potatoes accompanied fish fillets and asparagus for a delicious, simple meal. I was careful not to add too much buttermilk as per the advice of another reviewer. A pinch of white pepper was added. Thanks for posting! Reviewed for Veg Swap #19-2010.

    I used recipe#89007 for the caramelized onions. This a great variation on the typical mashed potatoes. The addition of the dill and the onions was tasty and fresh, it made a great accompaniment to pork chops that were breaded with a lemon dill breading. I left the skin on the potatoes, but other wise I followed the recipe as written.

    I love mashed potatos with caramelized onions, but never thought to add dill. What a great idea! Very yummy potatos, but make sure to add a little of the buttermilk at a time because I ended up with slightly soupy potatos. It was completely my fault, my large potatoes must have been smaller than yours :) Anyway, just watch out for that and thanks for posting Sarah_Jayne.

    Sarah, these mashed potatoes are WONDERFUL!!! I have to admit I am a bit of a mashed potato snob. I love them, but the plain every day ones don't cut it...I prefer designer blend potatoes :o) And don't even mention the flakes in a box. Now my kids on the other hand hear the words mashed potatoes and they go running for the hills. None of them have ever liked any form of squashed spuds. Tonight I am pleased to say that 3 out of the four ate all their potatoes without any complaints! The 4th ate 1/2 which is an amazing feat. I will definitely make these again. It is going in my Company's Coming and Holiday Favorites recipe collections. Thanks for sharing this fabulous recipe. Made for Veg*n Recipe Swap 2
