  1. My new favorte! YUMMY! The Nutmeg sounded strange...but it made all the difference!
  2. These were delicious! They will be made many more times I can guarentee that!
  3. Loved these! I used half red and half white potatoes, and increased the spinach to potato ratio to suit what I had on hand. Do not forget the nutmeg or the chives, they both added to the taste. Instead of sour cream I used a thick Greek low-fat yogurt. I also left the potato skins on and liked the resulting texture. I have a potato ricer but not a masher so I just used the back of a slotted spoon. BF liked this recipe too but was a little bit cooler about it than I was. Besides, he likes his mashed potatoes skinless and smooth and I like them just the opposite:D He's not rating this recipe either;)
  4. We had this for dinner last night and it was quick,tasty and made in one pot and I had all the ingredients on hand - all big pluses for me - I served it with vegetarian sausages so it was the modern take on bangers and mash and I will definitely do it again.
