    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.

    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.
