Love it! Put a few carrots in to give it colour - and lots of S&P.

Made this to go with the Balsamic roasted sausages and red veg. Very tasty, though I have to admit I didn't add the cream as I didn't have any. Tasted just as good though.

Really easy to do and very tasty - a grown up mash, lovely!

Dont know why you have to boil in the skins because it burnt my fingers trying to skin em. But after a few ouchs the finished dish was delicious.

Wear washing up gloves to take the skin off, no burnt hands.
I do this when stripping a chicken.

Really loved this - quick and easy and tasted wonderful with sausage and leeks. Definately use this when we next have steak. I also used double the mustard and I used MAILLE Wholegrain which added a slight sweetness.

Yummy, but I used at least twice as much mustard (medium strength) as stated to bring out the flavour.

This is really yummy and was fabulous with Salmon En Croute (Olive Recipe) just the right amount of bite to match the salmon! We finished the leftovers off with Bacon and Peas the next day and it seemed to taste even better in fact I think a poached Egg would have made it perfection!!! I will definitely make this again!!!

I used this recipe to go with our Toad in the Hole dish, it is a very very tasty mash.

I made this last night to accompany Quick Chicken Chasseur.  I worried a little when I added the cream and milk as it seemed to be too much for the potatoes but they firmed up and tasted delicious.  I would definitely make it again.

OK recipe, but I usually substitute plain yoghurt for most recipes that ask for cream,and although sometimes depending on the dish the taste is slightly sharper it's not really any different but alot healthier if you're watching your fat intake..
