Fancy Whipped Potatoes

As an Oklahoma girl, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I don't like gravy.  I generally avoid mashed potatoes because I don't like gravy and I don't like them by themselves.  I'm the one that asks if we can have fajitas for Thanksgiving instead of turkey and mashed potatoes.  Much to the chagrin of my husband who probably wishes he could swan dive into an Olympic-sized pool full of mashed potatoes and gravy.  I've finally found the perfect compromise.  These potatoes don't need any gravy.  They are whipped and light and full of flavor.  They stand completely on their own.  With Easter right around the corner, they are an elegant side dish to your Easter meal or any Spring dinner party.  The best part is no gravy involved.
An elegant side dish that stands all on its own.
No gravy necessary.
Fancy enough for a holiday,
or guests...
But great for a weeknight dinner too.
