Best mashed potato recipe I've ever made! Subbed almond milk for the buttermilk and made the rest as directed. Served with Spice-Rubbed Salmon with Lemon-Garlic Spinach. Outstanding combination of flavors!
We had this recipe for Thanksgiving at a friends house and it was excellent. I remember thinking when I was told what was in the mashed potatoes that is would be terrible, boy was I wrong. 2% milk was used instrad of the buttermilk.
