"Very yummy! I'll admit that I was a little wary about the flavor combinations, especially the lemon peel. However, these were great! I used dried spices instead of fresh and left out the red pepper flakes. The dish was flavorful and colorful and a nice change from traditional mashed potatoes. Also, I did not even have to bake this, I just mashed it and put it in a dish and served it."
