My sons ask me almost everyday if we are going to have “those potatoes” tonight. You’ve got big fans at this house, Nurse Di.”

  • “Wow!Delicious potatoes, Nurse Di!The only change I think I would make is to add a few chives next time and see how that turns out — I don’t know how you can improve on a perfect dish, but I think the chives might be nice mixed in as well.Thanks for such a wonderful recipe!!”

  • “Easy, fluffy, tasty, scrumy, ’nuff said.”

  • “these were soooo good. i had tons of the potato mixture left, so we saved it and warmed it up in the oven a few days later. this is a great recipe.”

  • “I didn’t mash these enough, so they weren’t quite as “heavenly” as I was expecting. But they were *really* good, and the 3-year-old and I went back for seconds. Worth a second look with me actually following the recipe 😉 They are so easy!”

  • “These are so delicious.I brought some the next day for lunch.Next time I won’t fill them as much, as a result the filling spilled over onto the baking sheet.”
