The name is right on the mark. They are flavorful! They are very easy and worth the few minutes it takes. I always try to use the freshest ingredients I can find. It's so worth it.

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

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

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.

This was EXCELLENT with the Hearty Salisbury Steak recipe. YUM! I made half the batch for my family of 5 and still had some left over. I used Silk unsweetened original almond milk in place of the fat free milk for fewer calories and more calcium. Very good!
