Wow! Great potatoes. I love Yukon Golds and grow lots of them in my garden. I don't like broth in my potatoes - makes them too watery for my taste, so I just upped the buttermilk, though it was 1% buttermilk. Much more creamy. I agree, I upped the the shallots an added a dash or two of garlic powder to give them a more garlicky taste. I do love garlic. Any way you mash them, this is my go-to recipe for mashed potatoes.
