OK, this was just put together with leftover potatoes - I had cooked a lot of red potatoes with butter and chives for Christmas dinner, and wanted to use the leftovers in something different. This was really good! I have given the directions as starting from scratch, but you can use leftover potatoes if you have them. Mine already had the butter in them.
