So today will be something different. This is not one of my recipes but it belongs to a good friend of mine, Dennis Horst. He is from Germany, and well, you know how they love potatoes. This is a German mashed potato with a salad recipe with a kick. The mashed potatoes have a hint of nutmeg and a splash of milk, while the salad is too good to resist.
