When my mother made these potatoes for the first time 25+ years ago at Thanksgiving one year, my first thought was "Oh no, you ruined the mashed potatoes!" (Love my taters.) Once we all tried them though, the new dish was an instant hit and has been a tradition at all of our holiday tables ever since. My daughter is making them too, and now her family always asks if the "special potatoes" will be served.
