- Place cooked vegetables in a large bowl or back into the pot to mash. Add dill, sour cream, parsley, butter, salt, and pepper. Mash again.
- Place mashed vegetables in a greased casserole dish. Dot with an additional TBSP of butter or margarine and bake (covered) @ 325 degrees for at least 30 minutes. Take cover off the last 10 minutes if you want it a little browned on top.
