Visually, these potatoes are beautiful. Their taste is alright.

This recipe was amazing! We even added less than the called-for amount of parmesan to lower the fat content. We also eye-balled the milk to ensure that it attained the right consistency. Easy and great for a weeknight meal or company.

I made this for Thanksgiving dinner. My family includes a lot of fussy eaters but even those who don't like mashed potatoes loved this dish (and requested the recipe). I used chives instead of parsley. It's also good with buttermilk in place of the milk.
