I made these for Christmas Eve dinner and they were pretty good. I made them per the directions and they needed a little more salt & pepper. Also, I had 6 adults and a child for dinner and there were PLENTY of potatoes left over. I would estimate this actually serves 10-12!! But, I will make them again ~ just more salt & pepper.
These were very tasty and creamy. I used a ricer instead of a masher, which made the potatoes a little smoother and creamier. This dish was a hit at our Christmas dinner.
Love the leeks in this, but I think the recipe would be even better with Yukon Gold potatoes. I think they mash (and taste) better than russets.
