    I usually like traditional mashed potatoes; but I loved these! A new favourite!

    Loved these! I have mad them multiple times - definitely the best mashed potatoes I've ever had.

    These potatoes are so tangy and tasty. I made them ahead of time in my KitchenAid stand mixer and then put that stainless bowl over a simmer saucepan of water (like a double boiler). Just before it was time to serve them, I whipped them up again in the sttand mixer and transfered them to a warmed covered dish.
