    Something else. if you are doing a pork or lamb dish to accompany the mash try adding a tsp of freshly chopped rosemary at the mashing stage  -  07 Jun 2010

    Easy! I chopped some chives and sprinkled them over the top to impress the wife. Landed a Lamb Kofta on top of the mash, then a Tomato Salsa recipe over that.  -  22 Jul 2014  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
