MY REVIEW

Wonderful! The herbs give it just the right amount of flavor while not over-powering the natural flavor of the potatoes!

MY REVIEW

kiltyone. For Pete's sake don't give a recipe one star just because you think it is too much work and you don't want to make it. Your review of something you haven't even tried drags down the rating from all the other people who obviously liked it a lot. You are entitled to your opinion but don't rate something you have no intention of making.

Who likes already-prepared stuff when you can have something MUCH better by taking a bit of time to make it yourself!

I don't understand all the hub-bub over all these side dishes.

Don't you know you can purchase already prepared micro to table sides availabl from the store where you can pick up an already roasted turkey and gravy. There is no need to go to such extremes of work when you can buy the whole dinners at your local markets.

Cranberry sauce comes in cans. You can buy canned gravy on shelves and in the deli.

Don't make a big fuss over nothing.

The pilgrims didn't eat all this stuff.

By not fully mashing the potatoes, I used this recipe to get my family hooked on "smashed potatoes". The herbs are terrific. Sometimes I add a handful of grated low-fat cheese and diced broccoli for a change of pace.
