red onion, chopped
minced fresh rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
This is certainly an acceptable recipe, but nothing extraordinary. Make some mashed potatoes and add some onion, bacon, garlic and rosemary. It's as simple as that. There's nothing wrong with this, and it IS a step up from plain old mashed potatoes (although there's certainly nothing wrong with plain old mashed potatoes!), there's just nothing here that blows your socks off. I added more butter, no milk.
Potatoes were a bit dry - I would suggest adding a tad more milk.
The flavors didn't blend well - I think a heavily carmelized sweet onion would have been better than the red onion.
I think these are TERRIFIC! The flavors blend together so well. I highly recommend this recipe. I used 8 small red potatoes and kept the skin on. I used 1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt in the water to boil the potatoes, and then added 1/2 tsp. kosher salt to the finished potatoes. I added 1/4 tsp. fresh groud black pepper and replaced 1/2 of the butter with light sour cream. I served these with the Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs from this site. These potatoes were my favorite part of the meal!
Very nice change from regular mashed potatoes. I like the recipe as is but also tried a variation where I substituted yogurt for the milk &/or butter.
I absolutely adore these mashed potatoes. To think something so easy could be so wonderful. There was a perfect balance of flavors.
I thought these potatoes were FANTASTIC! My entire family disagreed. I'll admit young boys 9-4 are not the target audience for this dish so take the rating with a grain of salt. They gave it a one and I gave it a five. Used 2 big russets and made as written. If your family loves plan jane mashed potatoes like mine- they may not like this. But I did!!
Will use next milk next time. But yummy.
I wish the recipe was more specific on the kind of potatoes and how big they should be. That aside, I used about 8 red potatoes, with the skins on and added a spoonful of FF sour cream when mashing the potatoes. I did heat the milk to almost boiling to make a fluffier potato. My family was divided. The husband and I liked this but the kids did not. I think it's a nice blend of flavors and quite different than your usual mashed potatoes. This went really well with Reunion Meatballs, which are also from this site, and garlic broccoli. I plan on using the leftovers tomorrow for breakfast by making them into fried potato pancakes.
