Excellent potatoes! A little high in fat, but great for a special dinner. Served with lamb chops and asparagus. Lots of flavor! Made for Spring 2012 Pick a Chef game.
I made these again last night. They are the best red-skin mashed ever!
Great minds think a like. My family has been making these for years. They are excellent!!!! Also, really good with crumbled crisp bacon mixed in.
