I saw the episode yesterday and made the Swiss Chard Mashed Potatoes for dinner today – WONDERFUL. This is a real ‘keeper’. My husband loved it.
So nice to have another Swiss Chard recipe for my file.

I forgot to mention that I did make one change. Instead of using butter, I used some olive oil and it was delicious.

Made this as a main dish for my vegetarian twins girls ! I used fried peppers spinch mushrooms ..amazing dish!!!! Thank you thank you I have watched you since your fist season as a teen Maria! ! You have help this Irish / Gearman make wonderful Italian food!


I think I saw episode, were the potatoes mashed?

Mary K Hawkshead

This simple dish is just wonderful. It has such rich, buttery flavor, and the swiss chard adds just the right amount of “bite” and texture. i followed the recipe exactly the 1st time, but can envision adding more vegetables, perhaps some protein, to make this a one-dish meal. This is comfort food at its best! Thank you, Mary Ann.

I used baby spinach instead of swiss chard & a cup of shredded carrot (like I saw on the show today) and I also used only olive oil (it’s a Greek thing). Turned out delicious and makes a great side dish or even a light lunch. Thank you MaryAnn for bringing regional specialties to your show-love it!

Michelle Graham

I made this recipe last night and used frozen spinach since that was all I had on hand. It was delicious! I will make it again and try swiss chard next time.


I watched this episode and this recipe is very different from the episode I saw. On TV she added an egg to the cooked potatoes, then sautéed onion & grated carrot. Tossed in chard. No milk. I’ll try the TV recipe.
