I'm happy to be the first reviewer of this recipe, so that I can enthusiastically report that these potatoes were WONDERFUL. Fragrant, flavorful and rich, they don't take a back seat to the main dish even tho' they are a side dish. I loved the dill in the potatoes, an herb I use routinely in grilled potatoes, but this was the first time I've used it in potatoes like this. Using red potatoes, coupled with the green of the herbs, also made for great eye appeal. This is not an extraordinary recipe for smashed potatoes, just a darned good one.

I wasn't a fan of the Thyme taste and i left out the dill only cause i didn't have it on hand but overall it was a good side dish served with tamales and ham. My kids loved it but most of the adults didn't touch it.

I thought these were good!I wasnt crazy about the thyme but its personal taste. I will make them again. Thanks for the recipe.

Read reviews first and adjusted thyme to only 1/4 tsp., used 1.5 tsp. minced garlic in place of garlic salt, and the Paula Dean in me used 1/2 cup butter (shhh). They came out GREAT. All around we are pleased with these and would make them again for sure. Pardon the photo, chicken roasting in oven so didn't get to take a fancy plated photo

I don't know about this recipe. One would really have to like dill to enjoy this. I like dill in deviled eggs and sometimes in potato salad. It was a bit much of a flavor for mashed potatoes. Although, I am giving it a 4 because I think it's just a personal taste. The potatoes were nice and creamy too. I just used regular peeled potatoes and I ended up near doubling the milk to get it to beat well. Only change I made was using low fat dairy products and that did not seem to be a problem.
