Reviews for Dilled Duchess Potatoes
"Love this. Its delicious"
"This was a big hit for my mum birthday. Family love it. It add a little more class than just having mashed potatoes in a bowl. I would recommend not to use all the salt since I double the recipe and the salt was a bit too much. I would recommend to half the butter and half the salt for a healthier sidedish. I add all the ingredients together. I didn't read about the butter at the end and it still turn out great. Plus, mashing the potatoes when they are very hot, is so much easier and give it more of a smooth texture. Also, I put a little piece of very hot red pepper at the top. It didn't burn the taste buds but you can taste the little spicyness and it look pretty too. I wonder if I can upload my picture?"
