Flecks of zucchini add pretty color to these potatoes. My mother prepared them each Christmas when I was young. Now my brothers, sister and I rely on the recipe. —Mary Maxeiner, Lakewood, Colorado

"What a wonderful flavorful recipe. My girls even loved it, and they are not zucchini fans. Great way to hide the veggies. The addition of the zucchini keeps the potatoes moist."

"I was surprised at how tasty these potatoes were. I didn't use as mush onion and zucchini as the recipe called for-it seemed like it would be too much. I used about 3/4 of a medium zucchini and less than half of an onion. My husband doesn't even like zucchini and he said these were very tasty. They're pretty to serve as well."

"Family really likes this --- some OF THE YOUNGER CHILDREN don't know the zucchini is a vegetable ! ! !

I later actually tried it with "not so mashed" potatoes in a little pie shell and was equally as good. Tried a variety of cheese. Worked as well."
