These were nice potatoes, and an inspiration for a change in my own menu. I used to enjoy eating Hot German Potato Salad (the kind with bacon and vinegar), but these days, I'm skipping bacon quite a bit, and smoked turkey didn't sound right, so I thought I'd be skipping anything even remotely like that more common dish. Well, when I added the vinegar and thyme to the caramelized onions, and then looked at the mustard sitting on my counter, I began to think that this might turn into a great substitute. I don't quite have it all down right yet, but I'm getting close. With extra vinegar, a little less mashing, and an added dose of mustard, some garlic added to the onions just before adding the vinegar, and possibly a good bit more horseradish (depending on who will be at table on a given evening), this should be a close second, if not a better replacement. I already enjoy this recipe, though I used soy milk instead of the cream, and oil instead of the butter, which sounded questionable to me. Given time, I think this will be one of my very favorite ways to make mashed potatoes! Thanks for the inspiration!
